In this chapter, the author shares his experiences as a researcher and clinical supervisor with palliative care nurses. Alun refers to published accounts of his research studies with community palliative care nurses and hospice nurses throughout the chapter. This research and clinical work has led him to believe that sharing an experience, without concern for negative judgement, but with prudence, supports palliative care nurses. This helps to make sense of care provision, and so events become more understandable and accessible.
