Palliative care nursing research aims to improve care for patients with life-threatening conditions and their families and includes physical, emotional, social, and spiritual domains. This chapter will help guide nurses and other healthcare providers in understanding the current state of nursing research and future directions. Published articles, information from leading palliative care and research organizations, and authors’ ongoing research were used to describe selected components of palliative care nursing research including (a) goals of palliative care research, (b) benefits and challenges in palliative care research, (c) priority research areas in palliative care, (d) palliative care funding source, and (e) preparation of a research proposal. Nurses are in ideal roles not only to provide palliative care at the bedside, but also to serve as leaders in research to advance the science of palliative care.
