Very good topic

I find this topic very relevant and helpful especially for a nurse like me who works in an in- patient haematology setting. Very informative.

Very inspiring

This has been a very good compilation of the end of life in both acute and chronic Leukemia. Since it hard to tell when the end of life will be. It's much simpler to do it as immediate as you start coming into contact with the patient and family members

Around 4000 people are diagnosed with acute leukaemia annually in the UK, 3200 with acute myeloid leukaemia (AML) and 800 with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL).

Survival figures for both AML and ALL vary greatly with age: in the over-65s, only 15% with ALL and 5% with AML live for more than 5 years after diagnosis. For patients at the end of life with acute leukaemia, care needs to be centred on their comfort and palliation of
symptoms. The aim should be to help the patient live well until they die.

This new e-learning course looks at the challenges of recognising end of life care and the practical nursing care needed for these patients. This concise educational resource is ideal for any healthcare professional involved in the treatment of patients end-stage acute leukaemia.
