We are delighted about this move as BMJ will enable the journal to have a wider reach and impact. St Christopher’s will continue to lead on the content of the publication and Helen Scott will remain as Editor.

It is primarily aimed at generalist nurses working in hospital, community and care home settings. However, many articles will also be of interest to the specialist palliative care nursing audience as well as members of the wider multidisciplinary team.

The journal focuses on care for patients with both malignant and non-malignant disease and their family and friends.

All journal articles have been transferred to the new BMJ journal website.

Previous subscribers will need to sign up to the new BMJ site in order to access journal articles as we are unable to share subscriber details due to data protection.
