This article analyses the concept of transitoriness, a perception of the end of life after cancer diagnosis, using Rodgers’ (2000) framework of concept analysis, which is designed to review literature with the overall purpose of developing theories. The influence of transitoriness on cancer nursing practice is considered. Finally, an exemplary case is presented with implications for practice.
