A Live Actor Simulation and Debrief

Advanced Directives, and Planning for End-of-Life Discussion

Senior Nursing Students work with Esther, a patient with COPD, who is anxious about her friend with COPD who has just been placed on ventilator assisted breathing, and also anxious about her own disease progression, since she is just home from the hospital. This is a great discussion trigger about working with anxious patients, and with patients who are concerned about their approaching decline and death.  Students can discuss how and the extent to which these senior students were able to help calm Esther and address her fears about end-of-life care.
