Palliative care is one of the ways human beings show empathy and respect for life and others. When the application of this type of treatment is required, it is understood that the patient is suffering from an extremely serious illness, mostly terminal. Health professionals do their best to try to improve the quality of life of these patients by reducing pain, preventing or managing side effects caused by the pathology or its treatment (as in antiretroviral medication used to treat HIV), and accompanying them in the search for solutions to the emotional, social, practical and spiritual problems that may arise during the final course of their lives.
This is an extremely complex area that requires both high-level technical expertise and an empathetic, warm and consistent approach to the work done.
