Since its launch in 1995, International Journal of Palliative Nursing (IJPN) has been committed to promoting excellence in palliative and hospice care. It is now established as the leading journal for nurses working in this most demanding profession, covering all aspects of palliative care nursing in a way which is intelligent, helpful and accessible, and so useful in daily practice.

The aim of IJPN is to provide nurses with essential information to help them deliver the best possible care and support for their patients. Each issue contains an unparalleled range of peer-reviewed clinical, professional and educational articles, as well as helpful and informative information on practical, legal and policy issues of importance to all palliative nurses.

The journal has a strong international focus. It is represented by an eminent international editorial board and articles are commissioned internationally to encourage the sharing of practices and innovations worldwide, and to raise awareness of the different cultural influences on palliative care.

IJPN is simply indispensable reading for nurses and other professionals involved in the care and support of patients with palliative care needs.
