Main Article Content
There is a lack of published information on utilizing the Deliberative dialogue methodology and the right to a dignified death in minors under 18 years of age in Colombia and Latin America.
To examine the issue of children and adolescents' entitlement to a dignified death, including the criteria for exclusion, and to formulate a comprehensive plan for pediatric palliative care. A public policy document will be created to support the implementation of Resolution 825/2018 about regulating the euthanasia procedure for children and adolescents in Colombia.
Participatory Action Research utilizes a Deliberative dialogue method that has been adapted based on feminist epistemological principles.
The outcome of the exercise was the production of a document containing Public Policy recommendations regarding euthanasia in minors and its submission to the Ministry of Health and Social Protection of Colombia a few days before the release of the Resolution regulating the right to a dignified death for this population. Additionally, the conclusions of this event enabled the creation of a guide for the implementation of (Cabildos Ciudadanos) Citizen Council, in which girls, boys, and adolescents are included, trans-disciplinarity is encouraged, and feminist epistemological foundations are explored.
The deliberative dialogue method may serve as a cost-efficient alternative to replace or complement participatory approaches utilized in the development of public health guidelines and policies.
