ATLANTES: Human Dignity, Advanced Illness and Palliative Care
Essential values of Palliative Care (PC) are hard to identify or evaluate as they are not visible, and therefore, hard to explain or understand. This project aims to explore the anthropological, historical and ethical aspects of PC by examining values such as gratitude, compassion and dignity To understand the essential attributes and values of PC, honouring the humanity of the endeavour, and sharing a common humanity and vulnerability among the intervening people, from multiple perspectives.
