17. The father of a family was told he had metastatic pancreatic cancer too advanced for any treatment. Which of the following is the most appropriate intervention for the nurse? Families who are dealing with illness and loss may encounter experiences in which nothing that they do will make the situation better. For example, a family may confront an irreversible loss, and no actions will rectify the situation. In these circumstances, both the nurse and the family often resolve the situation by searching for some meaning within what has happened. DIF: Cognitive Level: Analysis REF: pp. 352-354

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
