Background: The goals of end-of-life (EOL) or palliative care are as follows: provide comfort, promote death with dignity and provide support to patients’ families. However, the observations and interactions with first-generation Ethiopian immigrant patients, the patients’ families, and members of this community suggested an unsatisfactory EOL care experience among this community. Purpose: To investigate EOL or palliative care experiences for first-generation Ethiopian immigrant patients and their families. It is hoped that the findings from this literature review will provide greater insight to nurses and other healthcare professionals. Also, the researcher wants nurses to purposefully and reasonably consider these findings and develop a plan of cares that enhances EOL care for this community.
