The portfolio has three parts. Part one is a systematic literature review, in which empirical papers investigating the effectiveness of interventions for supporting and promoting wellbeing in palliative care staff are reviewed. A systematic database search identified 10 studies to be reviewed. A narrative synthesis of the findings related to effectiveness is provided, alongside a review of methodological quality of the research in this area. The clinical implications for healthcare services and directions for future research are also discussed. Part two is an empirical paper, which uses Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis to explore the experiences of nurses working within hospice settings and how compassion is experienced and understood in their work. The findings are discussed in relation to theory and implications for clinical practice and recommendations for future research are considered. Part three comprises the appendices supporting the systematic literature review and the empirical paper but also includes a reflective statement focusing on the research process. Part three also includes an epistemological statement.
