Le cure palliative nel territorio: la SAMOT a Caltanissetta

BY TANIA PICCIONE
@ VOL 2 ON JUL 19, 2018

The reference to the themes of humanization and the appropriateness of the treatments lead to palliative care as a concrete possibility for the treatment of the person who is in a terminal phase of illness. Palliative care underpins a carefree paradigm at all, entering the field when medicine seems to have to surrender to its limit and the finiteness of the human condition. Yet if the horizon of reference is not the pathology to be fought but rather a human being to be treated, this approach of medicine deploys its full potential.

L’accenno ai temi della umanizzazione e della appropriatezza dei trattamenti conducono alle cure palliative quale possibilità di concreta riposta alla cura della persona che si trova in una fase terminale di malattia. Le cure palliative sottendono un paradigma assistenziale affatto scontato, entrando in campo quando la medicina sembra dover arrendersi al proprio limite e alla finitezza della condizione umana. Eppure se l'orizzonte di riferimento non è la patologia da combattere ma piuttosto un essere umano da curare, questo approccio della medicina dispiega tutta la sua potenzialità.
