Evidence for implementation strategies to provide palliative care in the neonatal intensive care unit.
The authors sought to answer the clinical question: In neonatal intensive care, what evidence can be used to guide implementation of palliative care protocols? They found that successful team approaches included standardized order sets to initiate neonatal palliative care (NPC), NPC education for staff, and references to NPC guidelines or protocols.They recommended that barriers such as lack of interdisciplinary cooperation, lack of appropriate physical space, and lack of education be addressed during program development.
