Aims and objectives The aim of this study was to test the theoretical conceptualization of the co‐creative process in home care nursing encounters over time. Method and design This was a multiple case study with a deductive analysis of qualitative data over time, using interviews and observations collected from three cases. Results The co‐creative process was complex and contained main, sub‐ and micro‐processes. Time was important and valuable, giving the patient and relatives space to adjust the process to their own pace. Some processes were worked on more intensively in accordance with the patients’ and relatives’ needs, and these are considered the main‐process. The further developed theory of the co‐creative process and its main, sub‐ and microprocesses can be understood as a concretization of how good nursing care can be performed within caring relationships in the context of advanced palliative home care.
