With the development of the times, the medical model is shifting towards a "biological spiritual social" medical model. The new medical model suggests that diseases are a common phenomenon in social life, closely related to social and psychological factors. Therefore, diseases are seen as comprehensive symptoms that arise in the body after a combination of multiple factors. The transformation of this model has prompted people to reflect on traditional medicine and reflect on the true needs of life. In this context, soothing therapy and palliative care have emerged. After more than half a century of development, palliative medicine has formed a relatively complete system. Many countries have combined grassroots health services with rehabilitation nursing to form innovative rehabilitation nursing models, and these experiences have reference significance for people. This study aims to review and evaluate these achievements, and compare them with the situation in China, providing reference for the development of hospice care in China. The experimental results show that 35% of students believe they understand the psychological impact of illness, and only 5% of students believe they can provide good end-of-life care. There is a certain degree of insufficient awareness among nursing medical students.
