Abstract

Pain at the end of life continues to be of great concern as it may be unrecognized or untreated. Although nurses have an ethical obligation to reduce suffering, barriers remain regarding appropriate and adequate pain management at the end of life. This joint position statement from the American Society for Pain Management Nursing and Hospice and Palliative Nurses Association contains recommendations for nurses, prescribers, and institutions that would improve pain management for this vulnerable population.
