The article considers the role that palliative care professionals and community nurses can play to help patients fulfil their dying wishes. Topics covered include how having an honest conversation gives patients the encouragement to convey their wishes, the importance of acknowledging that patient wishes will reflect individual and cultural differences, and the importance of dying wishes, such as its positive impact on how people think and feel about their life, and how they die.
