Introducing the Lantern Model
The Lantern Model articulates the unique, vital and skilled role of nurses caring for people who are dying or bereaved and, by highlighting their contribution, makes the case for increased investment in their recruitment, development and retention.
Their hope is that this will stimulate thought and conversation about palliative nursing by nurses – who are interested to explore their role and its impact.
The model is underpinned by a variety of evidence – patient and family views, subjective experience of nurses and a review of the academic literature.
It has been generated through extended discussion and engagement with senior nurses with a broad range of nursing experience at the end of life.
It is the basis of a new practice development approach to building compassionate person-centred care being co-designed by hospices, Queen Margaret’s University in Edinburgh and St Christopher’s CARE.
