Abstract

The American Association of Colleges of Nursing specifies that all nurses must be prepared to deliver high-quality palliative care upon entry into practice. To achieve this aim, a clear understanding of palliative care nursing is needed. The Walker and Avant model for concept analysis was used to review and analyze relevant literature from 2000 to 2016. The authors utilized findings of this extensive review to develop a concept model and other practical resources for guiding nurses, educators, and researchers in applying and evaluating competence in the delivery of high-quality palliative nursing care.
