QUEIROZ, Terezinha Almeida et al. PALLIATIVE CARE TO THE ELDERLY IN INTENSIVE CARE: THE PERSPECTIVE OF THE NURSING TEAM. Texto contexto - enferm. [online]. 2018, vol.27, n.1, e1420016.  Epub 05-Mar-2018. ISSN 0104-0707.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/0104-07072018001420016.

Objective:

discover the meaning of palliative care for the elderly for the nursing team and identify how the family interacts with the elderly at the intensive care unit.

Method:

descriptive research developed at the intensive care unit of a public hospital in Fortaleza-Ceará-Brazil. The sample consisted of 58 professionals from the nursing team. The data were collected in the second semester of 2015 by means of a semistructured and recorded interview.

Results:

the results appointed three thematic categories: palliative care, particularly the relief of pain and suffering; interaction between relative and elderly; in which communication stood out as the most important; and inappropriate environment for palliative care, emphasizing orientation for care.

Conclusion:

the team has knowledge on palliative care and acknowledges the family as a link between professional and elderly. In addition, intensive care is not considered an appropriate environment for palliative care.
