The Path of Cicely Saunders: The 'Peculiar Beauty' of Palliative Care
from Journal of Palliative Care
This paper is aimed at focusing on the writings and the experience of the Hospice movemente Founder, Dame Cicely Saunders. The in-depth analysis carried out had the objective of verifying if "the way" of Cicely to understand, live and propose palliative care was still current and "beautiful", so that we can nowadays refer to her fascinating "Original Palliative Care". With "beauty" we mean, on the one hand, a way able to allow a personal path of research of the meaning of the disease and of the care, both for those who care and for those who are cared for.
