GUIMARAES, Tamara Borox  e  MAGNI, Cristiana. Reflections on the humanization of care in the presence of a life-threatening disease. Mudanças [online]. 2020, vol.28, n.1, pp. 43-48. ISSN 0104-3269.

The qualitative research was carried out based on the oral report of a Nursing professional experienced the diagnosis and treatment of a life threatening disease, with the objective of describing reflections on the humanization of care in professional performance with the terminality of life. Health care professionals live in their practices to face life-threatening diseases and experience the impact and changes that diagnosis and treatment cause in the lives of patients and family members. Content's analysis of health professional's report expanded the reflection on the multidimensionality of the human being in the health-disease process, and should be considered primarily in the context of the co-responsibility of the multidisciplinary team for offering humanized care to patients and family members. The professional's ability to communicate effectively with patients and family members underscores the importance of training for assistance centered on the needs of the patient. Spirituality, from the suffering experienced in the illness process, appears as a source of support for the acceptance of the disease. These reflections arouse the need for professional performance to be based on humanized care in the face of the process of death and dying and a tool to achieve this goal can be the construction of spaces for reflection and constant education of health professionals.
