About the Edition

The purpose of this study was to better understand and describe the lived experiences of the nursing staff at a large palliative care facility in Toronto when working with terminally ill patients from diverse ethno/racial background. A phenomenological approach was chosen. Data was collected through semi-structured interviews with twelve nurses. The themes identified were: the importance of a patient"s culture at end-of-life, the challenges of cross cultural palliative care, the skills to meet those challenges, the relevance of education and training in this setting, and the nurses" personal feelings of comfort with culture. The interrelated themes illustrated the nurses" experience of caring for culturally diverse patient populations. Implications for social work and nursing practice are found in the importance of role comprehension for interdisciplinary team functioning. Implications for future research include the need to study the experiences of each team member to foster a more comprehensive depiction of cross-cultural palliative care. The study was limited by its sample size and in the inexperience of the researcher. However, this phenomenological study should be seen as a contribution to the ongoing effort of understanding the lived experiences of palliative care professionals.
