Findings support integration of narrative reflection into palliative care education as an effective teaching strategy.Only qualitative findings of a larger study are presented; quantitative results have been published in the Journal of Hospice & Palliative Nursing (Home care and hospice nurses' attitudes toward death and caring for the dying: effects of palliative care education. 2005;7[4], 212-218).
