Faith, Love & Care in Medicine

ICMDA NORDIC MEETING

GOTHENBURG 27-30 AUG 2020

Human beings are tortured, mutilated and murdered in conflict areas around the globe. Systematic sexual abuse in the Balkans, in the Middle East, and Congo. Tens of millions of traumatized refugees are looking for security and a new future. Obesity, cardiovascular disease, depression, anxiety, drug abuse and addictive illness weigh on health care. Epidemics, environmental toxins, cancer - yes, everything should be taken care of by health care.


In difficult circumstances at the Panzi Hospital in Congo operations and rehabilitation are carried out. In the Nordic countries everyone is legally entitled to good care. Good care means good quality, high availability and safety. Those among us most in need should be given priority according to our ethics over the most vocal and powerful.


What role does faith/world view play for patients, doctors, nurses … for healthcare, nursing and ethics?

Where does courage, hope, endurance and competence come from? 

How are corruption, cheating and cynicism countered?
