Abstract
PURPOSE
The purpose of this study was to analyze the concept, 'palliation', in order to enhance understanding of palliative care and ultimately lead to the provision of timely quality palliative care. METHOD: This study used Walker and Avant's methods for concept analysis. RESULT: The defining attributes of palliation identified in this study were 1) being limited, 2) responsiveness, 3) leading to positive effects, 4) relativity, and 5) being unsettled. The antecedents of palliation were 1) a problematic condition, 2) appropriate management for the problematic condition, and 3) interaction between the problematic condition and the appropriate management. The consequences of palliation included 1) improvement of a problematic condition and 2) dependency on a management of the problematic condition.
CONCLUSION
Although further studies are required to refine the diverse attributes of the concept of palliation, according to this concept analysis of palliation, palliative care should be introduced at the early stage of disease and constantly provided for the improvement of its negative symptoms.
Key Words: Palliation; Concept analysis
