Abstract

INTRODUCTION: Chronic-degenerative diseases need specialized health care, especially in palliative care, since from the beginning of the disease the elderly is in this classification. In this context, the study aimed to know the meaning of palliative care to the elderly person from the nurse


METHODS: This is a descriptive, cross-sectional, qualitative study carried out in a private tertiary hospital in the Northeast of Brazil. The survey was conducted from March to June 2016, with 19 nurses. In the data collection, a semi-structured interview, with four questions were used: what does palliative care mean to you? What does care for the elderly in hospice care mean to you? What strategies do you adopt to promote palliative care for the elderly? Tell me about your experience in providing palliative care to the elderly. The technique of data analysis and organization was the Discourse of the Collective Subject.


RESULTS: Four categories of palliative care were produced: meaning palliative care; Experience in providing palliative care to the elderly; Meaning of caring for the elderly in palliative care; Strategies to promote palliative care for the elderly.


CONCLUSION: The meaning of palliative care was synonymous with comfort and quality of life. It is important to emphasize the patient-centered care and to carry out further studies on the subject to make nursing professionals aware of the importance of promoting adequate behavior in palliative care.
