Palliative Care is recognized as a multidisciplinary approach aimed at pain relief and relief of other symptoms that generate suffering in order to offer an improvement in the quality of life of the patient and his/her family in the face of a chronic disease in an advanced and terminal stage, through specific skills and knowledge, facilitating good communication with these individuals and families, seeking pain control and other symptoms, coordinating various medical and social services, and providing psychosocial and spiritual support, and in situations of mourning. The objective is to provide quality to the remaining days of life of the patient, not increasing that amount of days. The present study reflects on the process of humanization in health, addressing important aspects of life, including spiritual reflections, biopsychosocial issues, where it is sought to rescue respect for life, individuality and dignity of the person by strengthening the idea that palliative care, added to the values of humanization of care, can guarantee to cancer patients a more comfortable and dignified condition when they experience extreme situations.
