It is clearly that it interests, to psychiatry and the medicine to improve the quality of the death (as always it tried to make in relation to the quality of the life), that the patient reach this period of training of acceptance in peace, with dignity and welfare emotional. Thus occurring, the process until the death could be tried in climate of serenity on the part of the patient and, for the side of that they are, of comfort, understanding and contribution it stops with the patient. When trying to banish the death of the scene of the life, it operates a process of fear and anguish. Elisabeth Kubler Ross (1977), a psychiatrist Swiss-American, approaches in its studies on the death in the hospitals, the five periods of training that the people cross with regard to the death, and that they occur in the following order: negation? it has the negation of the death; anger – when one perceives that it does not have more as to deny the condition; bargain – revolt and other feelings in the expectation of that if it can revert; depression – when it starts to really see the condition and that it does not have more what to make, presenting, many times, remorse of what it left to make, feeling itself defeated impotent; acceptance – physically it is felt weakker, it wants to be alone and to sleep. In this last period of training it is when the professional absorbs the idea of the death. The profile and the affective sensitivity of each one, as well as the set of the lived experiences, have important paper in the chore with the death. Fentipo, that it is the somatria of the genes of the personality with the influence of the destination on them, can in such a way potencializar the fear of the death how much to help to coexist the conscience of the finitude better.
