English abstract
Introduction: In order for us to create a society where we live good lives until death, we must dare to talk about the end of life. Relatives are an important part of the palliative care and it is important that they get support for managing the situation and their sorrow The Aim of this study was to investigate professionals’ dialogue with relatives of patients who are in palliative care. My chosen method was qualitative analysis through semistructured interviews with professionals’ in palliative care. To analyze the empirical data, I used the symbolic interactionism. Results show that body language, treatment and team collaboration are important and crucial aspects of the conversations between professionals and relatives. The study has confirmed that the different professions work on the same goal and have a similar approach to palliative care. In the conversation with relatives, it is important to speak truthfully, prepare and let the family's feelings and thoughts take place
