|Philosophy, Ethics and History of Health Care|
Ethics, history of carePosition of the Course
- The student gains insight in different aspects of medical science.
The different historical landmarks creating the field of care nowadays will be mentioned. Following the philosophical and dogmatic medical science and methods of care of the middle ages and antiquity, the experimental model of the nineteenth century created modern medical and nursing knowledge. Different paradigmata will be explained prior to our current way of thinking to cure, care and palliate. The latter historical overview confronts the student with so-called alternative or non-scientific medical thinking. The systems are mostly remnants of prior dogmatic medical science. In the second part the foundations of bio-ethics are explained. Based upon the latter the principles of medical and nursing ethics are explained.Starting Competences
