Letter to the Editor

Abstract


Dear Editor CONJ,

I am a Bachelor of Science candidate majoring in nursing with a strong interest in palliative care, (PC) and was delighted to come across a submission by Collins and Small entitled, “The nurse practitioner role is ideally suited for palliative care practice: A qualitative descriptive study”, published January 1, 2019, in the Canadian Oncology Nursing Journal. Although I agree enthusiastically with the authors’ points, I do feel as though one key concept merits some expansion.
