This paper provides a theoretical model of spiritual needs in palliative care based on a review of the palliative care literature. Three sources of transcendence, the building blocks of spiritual meaning, are identified: the situational, the moral and biographical, and the religious. After areas of transcendence are described and explained, implications for future theory, research and practice are identified.
