In a nutshell: The aim of this study was to demonstrate the current involvement of district nurses in care homes and identify the potential implications for future practice in providing palliative care in this setting. The findings suggested that even experienced district nurses, wanted support and education about when to commence palliative care. They also wanted earlier involvement with care home residents who have a life-limiting condition and care home managers were seen as being essential contributors towards planning care.
