Palliative care nursing practice is defined as the provision of nursing care through an interdisciplinary team approach for the patient and family, with emphasis on their physical, psychological, emotional and spiritual needs when experiencing a life-threatening illness and through bereavement. Care focuses on quality of life, symptom management and family support.
