How patients with a life-limiting disease deal with temporality? An international qualitative study

Melanie Joshi RN MA, University of Cologne, Germany

In which time level are patients with a life-limiting disease oriented, and how do they deal with temporality?  In this presentation, Melanie Joshi will share insights from 57 in-depth interviews with end-of-life patients in 10 countries and the themes that emerged:  

  • concerning the past - remorse and regret, nostalgia, and coming to terms with past choices
  • concerning the present - feeling grateful for being alive, a time for farewells, and living for the day
  • concerning the future - worries about the future, to miss out, hope, ideas about death and dying, and planning the near future
  • concerning the future after death - not being there, worries about loved ones, and preparations for a future after death
