Palliative care continues to evolve in the United States and abroad. A rapidly aging population, increasing life expectancy, and shift to non-communicable disease as the cause of death are issues prompting countries worldwide to address the palliative care needs of older adults. In addition, palliative care capacity-building is inadequate due to limited trained staff, logistical and organizational barriers, and outdated policies. This presentation will review and identify trends in palliative care globally and provide exemplars of novel approaches and partnerships created to promote capacity-building from a transcultural nursing perspective.

This lecture is in memory of James Wake, chaplain and husband of former Marquette provost Dr. Madeline Wake, R.N., F.A.A.N. James’ career was devoted to helping others through social work and chaplaincy.

Presented by the Marquette University College of Nursing Institute for Palliative and End of Life Care.
