Abstract

Paliativna oskrba (PO) je pomemben, nepogrešljiv sestavni del zdravstvene oskrbe bolnikov z neozdravljivo boleznijo in se izvaja na vseh ravneh zdravstvenega sistema. Za celostno oskrbo paliativnih bolnikov skrbi multiprofesionalen tim, ki zagotavlja razreševanje fizičnih, psihičnih, socialnih in duhovnih težav, s katerimi se soočajo paliativni bolniki ter njihov isvojci. Glavni cilj je skrb za čim boljšo kakovost življenja. PO priznava življenje in umiranje kot naraven proces.
