Taboos, misconceptions, difficulties – experts about hospice Part 1.

Interview with Gyöngyi Balogh from the Korányi Hospital Polcz Alaine Hospice-Palliative Department

Abstract · I made my three-part interview with experts who have been working actively in the field of hospice care for years or decades. The aim of the interview was to compare the views and opinions of the interviewees in order to get an overall picture of the present situation and consideration of hospice care from the experts' point of view. During the conversation I put emphasis on the still prevalent questions of taboos and misconceptions. In the first part you can read my interview with Gyöngyi Balogh. My interviewee is a mental health expert of the Korányi Hospital Polcz Alaine Hospice-Palliative Department.
