MUDr. Ondřej Sláma, PhD.

Oncologist and Palliative Care Specialist, Deputy Head of Comprehensive Cancer Care in Masaryk Memorial Cancer Institute in Brno, Scientific Secretary of Czech Society of Palliative Medicine

My experience is that palliative care is meaningful and sometimes even entertaining - the physician has to deal with interesting clinical problems, but also accompanies patients in very important moments of their lives.

MUDr. Barbora Szonowská

Nephrologist, Internal Section Strahov, General University Hospital in Prague

I have come to palliative medicine through the feeling of helplessness that I felt when I wasn't able to help my patients only with the knowledge of my speciality.

It is satisfying to take care of the patient until the moment of death without suffering and in accordance with his preferences.

MUDr. Jindřich Polívka

Haematologist, Lead Clinician, Hospice of The Good Shepard in Čerčany

It is very important to inform the patient that his remaining time may be very short, so that he can arrange his last things. It is also important to support hope, which is not contradictory. I would consider it a failure if I didn't prepare the patient well for what he can expect at the end of his life.

Kateřina Bransburg

Chief nurse, mobile hospice Cesta domů (The Homecoming)

I like the fact that the patient is perceived as a person with the same needs as anyone else and that's amazing. I also like the fact that when the doctor makes a decision or has an idea, the nurse is considered as a teammate.
