Practice with persons living their dying: a human becoming perspective



Practice with persons living their dying: a human becoming perspective



Nursing Science Quarterly 12(4): 324-328



The purpose of this article is to discuss nursing practice with persons who are living their dying, from the perspective of Parse's theory of human becoming. Quality of life from the person's own perspective is the goal of practice guided by Parse's theory; hence, it is particularly relevant for nurses in palliative care settings, where quality of life is paramount. The practice methodology is explained and illustrated with an example drawn from experiences with a woman in a hospice in South Korea. As this woman lived her dying, suffering, joy, and sorrow emerged in cocreated relationships with important others.
