Overview

We practice in a profession that requires both specialized knowledge and technical skill; however, it also deals with human beings at their most vulnerable moments— during times of suffering, loss, desolation and pain. Learning to practice medicine with excellence, compassion, and justice requires more than a background in the biomedical and clinical sciences; it demands a refinement of one’s ability to connect with others in order to provide critical assistance when it is needed the most. This approach lies at the heart of patient-centred care.

This talk will:

1. Explore the meanings of patient- or person-centred care from a variety of perspectives: evidence-based, philosophical, ethical, and humanistic.

2. To explore the role of dialogue and reflection in ways in which person-centred care may be learned and taught.

3. To understand how education in person-centred care and education for equity and social justice are actually one and the same.

4. To reflect on the power of the humanities in understanding the human dimensions of illness and care.
