BACKGROUND: Recent international documents have highlighted the importance of preparing the nursing workforce for end of life care. However, these documents do not make clear what prepared in the context of end-of-life care actually means. Searching the literature failed to retrieve any papers defining prepared in this context. AIM: A concept analysis, using Walker and Avant's model, was conducted to help address this gap in the knowledge base. RESULTS: From this analysis many attributes and antecedents were synthesised...
