MELLO, Aline Andressa Martinez  e  SILVA, Lucia Cecilia da. The doctor Facing death: dealing with angst of the human condition. Rev. abordagem gestalt. [online]. 2012, vol.18, n.1, pp. 52-60. ISSN 1809-6867.

This report refers to a survey we conducted in order to understand the experience of the physician facing death. We adopted a qualitative methodology in which the analytical framework chosen was Heidegger's ontological phenomenology. Data collection was through interviews and the subjects were ten physicians from University Hospital of Maringá (PR). The results were expressed as units of meaning that summarized the experiences of anxiety and awkwardness in the face of death and the feelings aroused when dealing with death in medical practice, the concern with the procedures, the difficulty in dealing with the death of children lack of preparation and training. The study points to the need to create spaces for sharing experiences since graduation, contributing to a more careful attention to patients, and especially with the professional's mental health.
