This article tries to explain my experience and my learning, as a specialist in internal and palliative medicine, accompanying ill people who are dying. Healthcare professionals approach our patients with a certain attitude and with respect, trying to explore their threats and their fears that are at the same time ours. Training is needed to have tools and resources to support the suffering of the other to be able to accompany them. The process of spiritual transformation experienced by a person who is dying helps us to see that dying well can be possible.
