華人文化對「善終」有一種無形與無盡的追求,這種強烈的傳統觀念,往往在現今先進醫療體系下形成錯配,照顧者希望「盡做」和「盡救」的心態以至身心俱疲,也令臨終者能「壽終正寢」的機會更低,一路未能好走,適得其反。

 

醫療技術一日千里,走進臨終期的長期病患者愈來愈多。本環節嘗試從不同角度探討本港在臨終照顧及末期醫療決定所面對的挑戰,分析如何選擇在院紓緩治療服務及安辭在家寧養照顧,做到「去者善終,留者善別」。
 

Having “a good death” has been an abstract ideal as well as a relentless pursuit for the majority of Chinese people. This strong traditional belief of a “good death” however, often presents itself as a mismatch with some of the core values underlying the medical system in current age. While caregivers hold onto the beliefs of giving their best efforts in caring and doing the utmost to save lives for those who are nearing the end of life, these best intentions often take a heavy toll on caregivers physically and emotionally. At the same time, these efforts do not necessarily translate into “a good death” for those who are nearing the end of life. On the contrary, they could add to existing stress and make dying in peace challenging.
 

Science and technology is making huge strides every day in the medical field, and this is contributing to the overall prolonged survival and the increase of people suffering from chronic illnesses going into the stage of end-of-life. The current panel discussion provides different perspectives on the challenges presented at the forefront of end-of-life care as well as the clinical judgments around proper medical interventions in the context of such care. It will also analyze the choices between palliative care in a facility and home end-of-life care programmes, and discuss on how best to achieve “a good death” for those who are nearing the end of life and “a good parting” for those who are caring for them
