  I am Dr. Shao Yajuan from the Oncology Department of Xiehe Hospital. I have been engaged in oncology in Xiehe Hospital for 20 years.

About 10 years ago, we started to work with Anning and Palliative Medicine. Since then, we have paid more attention to the hospice care for cancer patients.

  I myself may always want to help more disadvantaged people. When I come into contact with patients with tumors, I feel that they are really suffering a lot.

At that time, I felt that if I did this profession, I could help patients.

But in the oncology department, you will find how many things you do, and always feel that you have nothing to do, very helpless and helpless.

In the first few years, there was a feeling of wanting to escape.

  When it was particularly helpless, the psychology department of our hospital was established.

I listened to a lot of courses, and then I did a lot of psychological training, and gradually came into contact with palliative care, as if opening another door, that is, when you think you really can’t save his life, but You can give him a lot of other help, so that he will not be so painful and helpless in the last time.

  Some small cards have been prepared here, in which patients have already put in their words. When the event is time, you can draw the blessings of others.

  I can often see volunteers come and take everyone to make snacks, make crafts, and sing songs.

One time when I rounded the room, the whole room was gone. Where did I go?

It was said that I would make dim sum and eat delicious food. The patients came back happily with a lot of food. They were very happy. At that time, you didn't feel like a tumor ward.

  There are probably two or three patients in an outpatient clinic. The disease is already in the very advanced stage, and then there are not many drugs or treatment methods in treatment.

If you count this, you can see about 400 such a dying patient in almost a year.

At the beginning, it was very difficult for me to communicate with dying patients about their condition.

At that time, I took care of a patient. She was just a mother. Their child was two years old. She kept telling me that she said she missed their child so much that I just...

  I said, do you miss your child especially?

She said yes.

I said I think you should go back, she said you think my illness can't be cured, right?

I say yes.

Then I finished talking, and I couldn’t stand it anymore. I was inside after I came out. I just walked out of the clinic, and when I walked out of that room, she cried very loudly inside. It was really howling and crying like hysterical. .

Now I actually know that the practice at the time was wrong. In fact, there should be a lot of foreshadowing, there are still many processes to talk about slowly, and there is still some hope.

  (I would feel that my illness will become a burden on my family.)

  I think you can think about it in another way. If other people in our family are sick, do you think they are a burden? I think they should not.

I think I still hope to be able to, the family still hope to be able to help you, they want you to be happy, hope you are happy.

  (When you first learned about your illness, what was your mood at that time?) At that time, I felt as if I couldn't believe it. Why did I think it was me?

I didn't have any special bad habits, or I didn't say that I was very tired, and I didn't have very bad living habits. Why did I get sick? There was no such genetic DNA in my family, so it was difficult to accept it.

  At that time, I remembered that I seemed to ask her (Shao Yajuan), I said this is not very good, because I did not dare to say that everyone is more taboo, and then Dr. Shao said that it may not look particularly good, but she said you don’t worry There are many ways to do this.

I especially remember that I came out of Dr. Shao’s clinic. At that time, I couldn’t help crying. Then Dr. Shao came out and patted me on the back. Then she said it was okay. She said you believe me, this is really good. Treatment, they can handle it, no problem.

At that time, I felt very moved.

  In fact, when I face these patients now, I am still very sad, I feel very sorry, and then cry too, but I feel that it is different from before. In addition to crying like before, I have many methods. , I know how to help them.

  Once I got out of the ward from the ward, I cried loudly when I went to the office, and then we cried very loudly. Then our colleagues thought what was wrong with me, but in fact, it was because a mother told me that she really wanted Looking at their son’s college entrance examination, she felt that she couldn’t make it, and then I couldn’t stand it. But now I actually think about it, although I can’t help her complete the process of accompanying their son’s college entrance examination, I can tell her and help her tell her My son, congratulate her son on his college entrance examination results and tell her how much mother cared about him at the beginning, so this is what we can do.

  [Subtitles] Nowadays, the concept of palliative care and hospice care is getting deeper and deeper into the work of oncologists.

More and more clinicians will seek the help of palliative care when facing dying patients, and for medical students, palliative care courses have become the content they must learn.

  Now the pain is there, what you have to deal with now is his (patient's) current pain.

I think that if a doctor can have these palliative medical concepts, among the patients he treats, he can improve the quality of life of the patients.
