Resumen

La Organización Mundial de la Salud define el cuidado paliativo como el cuidado total y activo en aquellos pacientes que no responden a un tratamiento curativo. El control del dolor, otros síntomas y los problemas psicológicos, sociales y espirituales son de fundamental importancia. La meta del cuidado paliativo es brindar la mejor calidad de vida a los pacientes y a sus familias. En el cuidado paliativo es necesario el manejo multidisciplinario. Nuevas estrategias como rotación de opioides y sus diferentes vías de administración pueden ofrecer analgesia con pocos efectos adversos.

Abstract

The World Health Organisation defines palliative care as the active total care of patients whose disease is not responsive to curative treatment. Control of pain, of other symptoms, and of psychological, social and spiritual problems, is paramount. The goal of palliative care is achievement of the best quality of life for patients and their families. Palliative care is necessarily multidisciplinary. New strategies such as the switching opioids and/or their route of administration may offer improved analgesia with fewer adverse effects, thus providing therapeutic alternatives for the clinical community.
