Abstract

COMORETTO, Nunziata  and  CENTENO, Carlos. EXPERIENCES IN CLINICAL ETHICS: A PROJECT FOR MEETINGS ON CLINICAL ETHICS IN PALLIATIVE MEDICINE. pers.bioét. [online]. 2016, vol.20, n.1, pp.38-47. ISSN 2027-5382.  http://dx.doi.org/10.5294/PEBI.2016.20.1.4.

"Meetings on Clinical Ethics in Palliative Medicine," as outlined in this article, is a project on ethical and clinical training in the area of palliative care. The project is part of a clinical program and broader research pertaining to recovery of the anthropological and ethical roots in the clinical practice of palliative care. It is aimed at professionals and researchers in palliative care and consists of informal meetings where the human and professional values involved in actual clinical cases are analyzed. Anthropology, general ethics, medical epistemology and philosophy of medicine are considered essential in this program of ethical and clinical training, as are the valuable insights provided by the humanities. The specific objective is not only to provide a list of ethical principles, but also to promote an ethical disposition on the part of the person who acts.

Keywords : casuistic; ethical-clinical training; palliative car.
