Aromatherapy at the Bedside with Nurse Margo

This week Adrianne chats with Nurse Margo about aromatherapy use at the bedside, specifically in palliative and end-of-life care. They discuss how aromatherapy is used in the hospital setting, as well as how Margo approached her evidence-based project, and how she helped improve essential oil use on the unit. The moral of Margo’s story however, is that any nurse, regardless of years of experience, can impact bedside practice and contribute in meaningful ways.

Margo has also provided us with some great resources for further education on aromatherapy use among patient populations.
