Brèves réflexions sur les conditions des fins de vie en cancérologie

Abstract : Oncology is primarily concerned with the question of the end of life: cancer is the cause of one out of three deaths in France. How oncology is addressing teh issue the time the report of Professor Sicard on end of life to the President, and notice No. 121 of the National Ethics Committee on the same subject are simultanously published? We provide an overview of the legal and "societal" aspects of the question of the end of life in oncology (I) in order to contextualize the presentation of the notice No. 22 of the Committee “Ethics and Cancer”—this notice to be seen as the contribution of French oncology to the debate (II). We conclude with some reflections on the political—rather than purely moral or ethical—public discussion that arose.
