La médecine et la négation de la mort (video)

Didier Sicard évoque les différents aspects de la mort, comme la mort évacuée, celle des autres. La mort est absente du cursus universitaire, elle fait d'ailleurs fuir les étudiants. La mort est un tabou et l'hôpital est un lieu où la mort est escamotée. Les soins palliatifs qui sont en régression en 2005 posent aussi parfois le problème du respect de l'intimité du patient avec la mort.
