A Community of Exceptional Nurses
This bibliography and resource materials were devised by
Critical Care Workgroup
to be a resource for clinicians, researchers, and administrators
working to improve end-of-life care in the ICU. It includes a bibliography of books,
review articles, and research articles concerning end-of-life care in the ICU setting.
For those articles that are listed and abstracted on the National Library of Medicine
database PubMed, links are available from the article titles to their PubMed abstract.
The Web site also includes some example protocols, order forms, and clinical pathways
that have been developed at a number of U.S. hospitals with the goal of improving
care to patients in the ICU. These documents are downloadable in PDF format. In
addition, there is a downloadable Endnote database that contains references for
all books and articles referenced on this page.
