Regarding “unbearable pain,” we must kill the pain, not the person with the pain. Failure to offer pain management is now a breach of human rights.
Founder of McGill Center for Medicine, Ethics and Law End-of-life is a precious moment, for us and for the person leaving us. It is our responsibility to make it a privileged moment, to make ourselves available, to look at our loved ones under a new light, and to see them as they truly are. End-of-life is a period where we simplify and show the essential of what we want to leave to our loved ones.
