Many studies have focused on the relationship between the assessment of patients and maintaining strong communication.

Numerous studies have examined the critical relationship between patient assessment and effective communication. Research conducted by Limbu et al. (2021) highlighted the pivotal role of nurses in caring for patients nearing the end of life within acute hospital settings. This involves providing not only physical and emotional support but also managing symptoms and facilitating coordinated care with other healthcare professionals.

According to Gonella et al. (2019), nurses` assessments of patients are essential in determining the appropriate level of care and interventions needed. These assessments inform the provision of necessary care, including pain and symptom management, based on a thorough evaluation of the patient`s physical and emotional needs.

Patients nearing the end of life often experience distressing symptoms such as pain, exhaustion, and shortness of breath. In response, nurses may administer pain relief medication or employ techniques like distraction or relaxation to alleviate discomfort. The nurse`s comprehensive assessment of these symptoms is critical for selecting the most effective interventions to address the patient`s symptoms.
