How do nurses in palliative care perceive the concept of self-image?

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Nursing research indicates that serious illness and impending death influence the individual's self-image. Few studies define what self-image means. Thus it seems to be urgent to explore how nurses in palliative care perceive the concept of self-image, to get a deeper insight into the concept's applicability in palliative care.
