Étude de l'accompagnement de la fin de vie des personnes âgées dans les EHPAD du Bessin-Prébocage en 2019

Abstract : End-of-life support in our society where death is a taboo is a public health issue. This makes no exception in the EHPAD. ANESM published recommendations about good practices to improve quality of end-of-life support in EHPAD. In the Bessin-Prébocage, medical, social and medico-social structures gathered and founded the GCS Axanté. Thanks to this, the EHPAD can get specific expertise in the field of palliative care with the EMTSP "Le Lien". The aim of this project is to study the practices of endof-life support in the EHPAD of the Bessin-Prébocage in 2019 in the light of the national recommendations. A qualitative study through semi-conducted interviews of coordinator-nurses in the EHPAD of the territory has been made. Forces and limits of end-of-life support practices in these EHPAD have been compiled. It shows that caregivers of these EHPAD express a strong commitment with their residents during their end of life. However, the lack of palliative care training of caregivers restrain the quality of end-of-life support. Objectives of improvement for end-of-life support in theses EHPAD have been identified. These objectives are the basis of an action plan for the CPTS BessinCaenOuest-Prébocage in coherency with his health project. Thanks to this, EHPAD of the BessinPrébocage could become centers of expertise in end-of-life support.
