Palliative care unit, France

This report was realised in the palliative cares unit of the Paul Brousse hospital. Treating or curing is not the aim of this unit, it takes care of people whose the illness can’t be stopped and of whose death is near. That’s this will to consider that the end of the life is an essential moment that medicine can’t neglect. Even if doctors and nurses had always do the palliative cares, the particular taking into account of escort to death in the hospital place is a recent idea, as the medical treatment of pain.
