End-of-life planning helps nurses meet the needs of their patients at a crucial time of life.

Based on a literature review, we developed a new conceptual model illustrating the concepts and dimensions of end-of-life care planning among diverse individuals across countries, lifespans and age groups, ethnographies, and residential statuses. This conceptual model includes 3 concepts: personal factors, stakeholders, and environmental and social factors. The concepts are interrelated and directly related to end-of-life care planning.
