Description RESUMO:Neste texto, questiono o que significa respeitar pacientes com demência. Além disso, analiso qual abordagem apropriada deve ser empregada ao discutir pacientes com demência, como determinadas pessoas. Examino abordagens diferentes, como a abordagem da autonomia, a abordagem do melhor interesse e a abordagem do conceito de personalidade no sentido forte e fraco. Argumento que a abordagem autônoma que entende os pacientes com demência como capazes de tomar decisões autônomas afirma a validade do princípio de respeitar a autonomia. Por outro lado, a abordagem do melhor interesse se concentra no conforto da experiência atual do paciente para respeitar os pacientes com demência. Assinalo que tanto a abordagem autônoma quanto a de melhor interesse são inadequadas para as questões que endereço neste artigo. Argumento e concluo que a abordagem baseada no conceito de personalidade é apropriada, não no sentido de que a personalidade do paciente é o único fator importante (no sentido forte), mas no sentido de que é um fator importante no respeito ao paciente com demência (no sentido fraco).
ABSTRACT:In this text, I address the question what it means to respect patients with dementia. Further, I analyze what appropriate approach to be employed while discussing dementia patients, as certain persons. I examine different approaches, such as, the autonomy approach, the best interest approach and the approach of the personality concept in the strong and weak sense. I argue that the autonomous approach which understands patients with dementia as being able to make autonomous decisions, asserts the validity of the principle of respecting autonomy. While, the best interest approach focuses on the comfort of the patient’s current experience to respect the dementia patients. I point out that both the autonomous approach and the best interest approach are inappropriate for the questions which I engage in this paper. I argue and conclude that the personality concept-based approach is appropriate not in the sense that patient´s personality is the only important factor (in the strong sense), but in the sense that it is an important factor for respect of the dementia patient (in the weak sense).
