Abstract:
Education for patient centred practice is first and foremost linked with search for meaning, meaning for the person receiving care and meaning for the caregiver. In view of giving roots to the meaning of nursing, we are proposing an approach that calls upon philosophy, anthropology and ethics. From this perspective, nursing models are seen as windows that enable us to reflect upon the nature of care, the method of anthropology gives meaning to nursing situations and through ethics, the act of caring embodies human dignity and reciprocal autonomy. As a trilogy, the disciplines of philosophy, anthropology and ethics provide a wide rage of complementary means that facilitate the acquisition of the competencies needed for a caring interaction. From this particular standpoint, the meaning of nursing is inscribed in a desire for partaking in humanity. Throughout our presentation, we will offer examples that illustrate the choice of contents and strategies for learning and evaluation for this particular educational approach. We will also point the challenges and the pay-off.
