Abstract

Registered nurses and social workers may have little experience engaging in end-of-life discussions. Technology-assisted continuing education (TACE) improves interprofessionals' capability and comfort with these difficult discussions. This study measured the impact of TACE on improving the capability and comfort of caregivers with end-of-life communication. Comfort and capability scores increased postintervention. This was the first dual site two-discipline pilot study to explore this TACE methodology.
