Abstract

The article presents the author's reflection on the concept of meaning of life for patients provided with palliative care and those who are at the end of life within the framework of public health in Great Britain. The concept covers several experiences including a change in life priorities, presence of spiritual growth and development of self-knowledge. The purposes of interactions between health professionals and families of patients are outlined.
