Sammanfattning: Palliative care concerns care of those who are dying and when cure is no longer an option. The nurse´s job is then to support the patient and to give care of good qualitive so that the patient will experience optimal quality of life. The aim of this literature review was to describe how the nurse can prepare herself/himself for the meeting with both the patient and close ones also to describe a nurse´s need of support and education. Nine studies have been used as a foundation for this literature review. Four headlines have been crystallized out of the result, a) the view of death b) the impact of the meeting c) the importance of support d) the importance of preparation and education. The nurse experiences uncertainty in the meeting with the dying patient and his/her close ones and wishes both more support as well as more education. To sum up, this literature review can develope questions in the different units. These questions can then contribute to the developement of support and education, especially within areas that cares for dying patients.
