A complex and contested concept, dignity is recognised as a significant factor in a person’s experience of care. Variations in the provision of dignity in care are reported in the literature and in the media.

The purpose of this PhD study is to explore perceptions of preserving dignity in care among nursing students enrolled in a three-year preregistration undergraduate adult nursing programme.
This thesis offers an original contribution to knowledge through providing a...
