All clinical practice includes decision making, and sometimes you are ethically challenging because of the consequences it will bring to the patient, the health professional or society in general. Ethics seeks the best solution to a better treatment and seeks to increase the quality of life of the patient with correct decision making. Ethical / bioethical considerations are of a generic nature, and do not apply to specific situations. Therefore, it is suggested that there should be guidelines or recommendations in the field of palliative care in Mexico that may be an adjunct to decision making. The relevance of knowledge, application and management of ethical / bioethical recommendations is unknown as part of decision-making by professionals dedicated to palliative care in our country, taking into consideration the principles of autonomy, beneficence, non-malfeasance and Justice. It is necessary to consider the participation of patients, caregivers and health personnel in this decision making process of decisions. This study intends to identify the current situation of this issue in Mexico.
