Abstract

Death and life are dimensions involved in the process of health work and are crossed by the way society relates to diseases, patients and outcomes of this process. In this paper, we set out a qualitative research with a team of palliative care, in order to debate: why the health work process produces ways to prevent, camouflage and disregard something that follows the existence, i.e. death? Does death bring us nothing but pain and feeling of vulnerability and finitude? We build arguments that articulate the live work in action with death in the work process in health thus concluding that the professionals who participated in the study used live work in action based on a complex and dense space of living life even in the face of the death.
