Abstract

This project is a curriculum to orient new home care nurses to hospice palliative care nursing practice. The curriculum is founded on the Supportive Care Model of nursing (Davies & Oberle, 1990) and the hospice palliative care nursing competencies outlined by the Canadian Nursing Association (2007). Experiential Learning and reflection were selected as pedagogical approaches. The curriculum in seven modules and a curriculum blueprint are included as appendices.
