Background and Objective: Palliative care has been introduced as a strategy to improve the quality of life (QoL) of patients with incurable diseases and their families. One of the crucial points in palliative care is respect for human dignity. Therefore, this study aims to review the dignity of patients under palliative care along with its impact on patients.
Materials & Methods: In the current narrative review, Persian studies were searched in Persian language databases, such as SID and Magiran, with the keywords, patient dignity, and palliative care from April 2012 to May 2022. To search for studies in English, the keywords of patient dignity and palliative care were used in PubMed and Cochrane databases from June 2010 to May 2022. Meanwhile, the search was conducted in the Google Scholar database in Persian and English along with a manual search in Google. After searching the databases, 106 articles were selected and by applying the inclusion and exclusion criteria and removing duplicates, 8 articles were examined.
Results: The results of the study showed that out of 8 articles, 1 article was in Iran and 5 articles were qualitative studies. Individual, care, and communication factors are effective in maintaining patients’ dignity.
Conclusion: Maintaining human dignity is one of the critical needs of a person under palliative care. Hence, the healthcare staff should consider treatments based on human dignity and perform their professional tasks deservedly according to the factors affecting the creation of dignity.
