Abstract

Heart failure is a chronic condition whose evolution can be marked by the ineffectiveness of treatments. The nursing team supports the patient at the end of life and their family. The palliative care approach takes into account ethical reflection on the part of the different health care players to improve the care provided during this difficult period.
