Penser la collégialité pour panser le soin

Abstract : End-of-life and the decisions that caregivers may need to make can become an issue due to the ethical issues involved. The Act of April 22, 2005 on patients rights and end-of-life requires the establishment of a collegial process for decisions on limiting or discontinuing treatment in end-of-life patients who are unable to express their will. This has been reinforced by the Act of February 02, 2016 creating a news rights of patients at end-of-life. One presupposition left by the law is that this decision has a stronger chance to be right when taken collectively, than alone. However the representation of the health care professional concerning this collegial process influences its application. Therefore, In this context, where caregivers can interpret the law in different ways, the question arises of the meaning of this collegiality and how health professionals have adopted this tool. Wouldn't the concern with collegiality be about the care of the person incapable of expressing their wishes? How do medical professionals take this tool and think of the care for this person?
