Mort médicalisée et don d'organes : quelle perception pour les vivants ?

Abstract : The evocation of organ donation inevitably follows the brutal and unexpected intrusion of death into the psychic intimacy of the patient's loved ones. In the etymological sense of the word accompaniment "ad cum panem", caregivers will have to engage, with and for the deceased's relatives, in a meaningful effort of cognitive decoupling between their sensitive perception of death on the one hand and a decisive deliberation about organ donation on the other hand. Remote from events, it is instead the reconnecting of the two events that will give sense to the tragedy lived-a death that has meaning-and leads the grieving process on the way of resilience.
