The article reflects on the concept of a "good death" for patients in hospice care or with clinical symptoms indicating an imminent death. It focuses on how community nurses can help the patients, many of whom prefer to die at home rather than in a hospital. Particular attention is given to context in determining what constitutes a good death.
