The National Consensus Project for Quality Palliative Care’s Clinical Practice Guidelines for Quality Care is a significant resource that offers the nurse a framework for quality care in all settings. The Clinical Practice Guidelines are appropriate to a range of populations from neonates to children to adults and older adults; a range of chronic progressive and serious life-threatening illnesses, injuries, and trauma; and a range of vulnerable and underresourced populations. The Clinical Practice Guidelines are appropriate for any setting because they facilitate partnerships for caring for patients with debilitating and life-limiting illnesses and offer support for the nurse in delivering the care, particularly for long-term patients.
