End-of-life care has received focused attention over the past two decades in the United States. Although end-of-life care has greatly improved, considerable work remains to ensure that all Americans who are dying receive high-quality care. This important work cannot be delegated to one specialty area, but is the responsibility of all specialty nurses interacting with individuals who have life-limiting illnesses. Infusion nurses, in particular, are encouraged to commit themselves to ensuring the provision of high-quality end-of-life nursing care.
