Abstract: The Scottish Government promotes equity in palliative care delivery in Living and Dying Well (Scottish Government, 2008). Ten nurses, working in the community in Western Isles, participated in focus groups to discuss how palliative care needs of islanders may best be met. Analysis used Framework (Ritchie et al, 2003) and identified needs of the family unit, teamwork, specialist skills and rural issues as the main themes. Nurses feared burgeoning caseloads and expressed a need for time to share and develop knowledge and skills. They described a collaborative model of care in keeping with that recommended by Scottish Partnership for Palliative Care (2006). Further research could seek the views of island patients and families requiring long-term palliative care.
