Abstract [en]

Honesty is essential for the care of seriously ill and dying patients. The current study aimed to describe how

nurses experience honesty in their work with patients receiving palliative care at home. The interviews in

this phenomenological study were conducted with 16 nurses working with children and adults in palliative

home-based care. Three categories emerged from analyses of the interviews: the meaning of honesty, the

reason for being honest and, finally, moral conflict when dealing with honesty. The essence of these

descriptions was that honesty is seen as a virtue, a good quality that a nurse should have. The nurses’ ethical

standpoint was shown in the moral character they show in their work and in their intention to do good. This

study could help nurses to identify different ways of looking at honesty to promote more consciousness and

openness in ethical discussions between colleagues and other staff members.
