ABSTRACT

The paper is a reflexive revision about an ethical proposal of death. Death is seen as a natural part in the process of life. There are different ideas focusing in the useless suffering in patients, physician’s frustrations and unfair indignation from patients´ families. It is also questioned the traditional way to understand the right to live versus the right to a life with quality, understanding the last as the most important. The article, concluded with a critical point of view about euthanasia and implications generated by health professionals in their daily practices.


Key words: death, ethics, value of life, quality of life, euthanasia.
