The death process is unique and finite and the manner in which it is experienced depends on the manner and quality of care received. Cancer is often responsible for the initiation of this process. Throughout the death process, palliative care and pain control programs have the ability to enhance the quality of life of patients. The quality of the last stages of life of patients coping with Cancer is weaved within the meaning of the quality of death which leads to confronting the death experience. A person's quality of death can be defined by comparing their preferences at the end of life contrasted with the observations and information observed by others. These points motivated the theoretical and empirical exploration of the quality of death of people with Cancer, which is a necessary step to further increase the knowledge base and understanding for professionals working in this area

Palabras clave : Quality of death; cancer; nursing care.
