About 56.8 million people receive palliative care each year and wanting care at home is common. The patient needs to receive good palliative care and the nurse can relieve suffering through giving the patient attention to needs and wishes.

Therefore, it is important that nurses have knowledge of patients' experiences of receiving palliative care at home.
