Abstract

Dementia is fast becoming a serious public health concern. The lack of understanding of the terminal nature of dementia frequently results in overly aggressive treatment during the end stage of the disease. Nurses need to recognize and encourage a paradigm shift in the way dementia is perceived and treated, including promoting early initiation of palliative care services.
