End of Life Journal

End of Life Journal is free, online, peer-reviewed journal that publishes articles on all aspects of nursing practice relating to end-of-life care.

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.
