RIBEIRO, Camila Chudek; SCHNEIDER, Venicius Scott  e  CORREA, Amanda Calvetti. Subjectivity Predicaments in Palliative Care: a Psychoanalytic Study. Rev. SBPH [online]. 2021, vol.24, n.2, pp. 119-131. ISSN 1516-0858.

Palliative Care is defined as an approach that promotes life quality to patients enduring life-threatening diseases, through symptom prevention and relief. Throughout our experience in this sector, being in a Multiprofessional Residency Program in Psychology at a teaching hospital, the predicaments and challenges encountered have engendered important questions concerning the psychoanalytical praxis in a hospital institution, historically characterized by the hegemony of the medical discourse. Thus, this paper aims to identify some obstacles that can arise from working with the subjective at a hospital, as well as problematizing possibilities of forwarding such situations, regarding the healthcare team, the patient, and the Psychoanalysis practitioner. For this, we conducted a theoretical study based on a literature review with the psychoanalytic framework articulated with clinical illustrations. We observed that situations of illness and finitude can catalyze too much anguish, both for the patient and his family, as well as for the healthcare team - psychologist included. In this context, the elaboration of questions about one's practice, sustained by theoretical studies, supervisions, and personal analysis, is essential to make psychoanalytic work feasible, thus, preventing that the practitioners preclude their listening by being taken by their anguishes.
