The World in Dialogue. International and Interdisciplinary Perspectives on Care for the Dying and the Dead

Summer School 2016 der PTH St. Augustin und der Creighton University über die Versorgung Todkranker, Sterbebegleitung und Bestattungskultur

Gemeinsame Summer School der Creighton University Omaha (USA) und der PTH St. Augustin u

Stand noch vor einigen Jahren eher die Frage des technisch und (apparate)-medizinisch Machbaren im Zentrum des Interesses, wenn es um die Versorgung von Sterbenden ging, so rückt heute zunehmend die menschliche Seite des letzten Lebensabschnittes in den Blickpunkt. Welche Versorgung und Begleitung brauchen Todkranke und Sterbende? Wie gehen wir mit Verstorbenen um? Antworten will die Summer School 2016 finden, die die Creighton University Omaha (USA) und die Philosophisch-Theologische Hochschule SVD St. Augustin erstmals gemeinsam veranstalten.

Aus pflegewissenschaftlichen, theologischen und historischen Disziplinen sowie Medizin und Kulturanthropologie werden Fragestellungen rund um Pflege und Sterbebegleitung behandelt. In Vorträgen und kleineren Arbeitsgruppen werden verschiedene Themen vorgestellt und diskutiert. Durch Exkursionen zu Einrichtungen der Palliativ- und Transplantationsmedizin sollen die gewonnenen Erkenntnisse praxisbezogen vertieft und erweitert werden.

Hinweis: Die Unterrichtssprache ist Englisch.
Für 2017 ist eine Folgeveranstaltung an der Creighton University geplant, an der die Teilnehmer dieses Jahres ebenfalls teilnehmen können.
