SEGOVIA, Carmen. Influence of the sanitary professionals in the request of donation. Enferm. glob. [online]. 2009, n.17. ISSN 1695-6141.

The communication of bad news is an stress generating task for the health professionals and, at the same time, an important human, ethical, medical and legal action. Last years, news transmission has evolved from a paternalistic attitude to an informed consent based relation, covered by our Health General Law. The donation process is immersed in the worst news communication process, the death, and most of the time produced suddenly. Studies made at European hospitals, show that the contact with families of critical patients is an stress generating source for the nursing professional. Our aim is showing the consequences of that communication and presenting how to drive it in a Helping Relationship to the family.

Keywords : Communication of bad news; Request of donation.
