Make aware to the sick in the resolution of problems and in the scope of their achievements. Facilitate the search for new approaches to the patient to face setbacks through empathy, warm respect, authenticity, immediacy and active listening. Treating patients as unique persons, without being influenced by labels or stereotypes. Distance feelings of sympathy or antipathy that may arise. Compensate for the lack of human relationships in the sick person exerting the role of friend or family member who understands him and listen, always maintaining the therapeutic distance being a professional.
The vision that must have health care team, in which is found the nurse, towards the sick should be directed towards respect for their dignity as a person human, beliefs and values, by its characteristics of individuality and complexity that make it respond unpredictably to circumstances of life. In the case of a terminally ill patient the humanistic of the profession goes beyond, it is necessary that the nurse takes a mature attitude, empathic, manifested through compassion for the suffering of sick, is in place for fear death as a fact unknown that feels weak and vulnerable. Care to the terminally ill required to health care team and their relatives treated until the end with respect, love and empathy, therefore this staff requires a solid training in ethics for his moral performance, allowing you to identify, analyze and reflect in an appropriate manner, and decide alternatives for any decision on the fulfilment of its functions. It is essential to reflect on human care we are offering to the terminally ill each of us at the present time, since the care as a human condition should constitute a moral imperative in the care of the terminally ill. The personnel that work in health sciences must accept the finitude of life is not a disgrace, is a hopeless stage of the human being, and human dignity must be present until the last second of life in this world. It is necessary to be in concordance with the technology, with science, but without losing the perspective of other people, i.e. the spirituality that people who are around us can show. Science applied to benefit of man and infused with wisdom.
