Avec l’évolution de nos sociétés et le vieillissement des populations, les systèmes de soins de santé sont appelés à réagir à des défis toujours renouvelés et toujours plus complexes. Les soins infirmiers palliatifs doivent changer pour relever ces défis, notamment en ce qui a trait aux soins à des patients et à des familles issus de contextes sociaux différents, et pour ce qui est de la satisfaction des besoins de larges groupes de personnes. Cette évolution passe par le développement des savoirs et par un appel à l’action centré sur le patient. La consolidation de l’implantation des soins infirmiers palliatifs ne pourra se faire sans reconnaître qu’il faut aborder la question du fardeau moral que constituent les soins aux mourants et qu’il faut élaborer des stratégies d’adaptation.

I’m Still Here: Young Adults Living Life with Recurrent Cancer

I'm Still Here suit six jeunes adultes en récidive de cancer durant une retraite Callanish de 3 jours. Après le film, nous aurons une discussion axée sur le travail créatif mené sur la peur, l’incertitude et l’espoir, animée par trois des protagonistes du film : une jeune adulte vivant avec une récidive de cancer, et deux des cofondatrices de la Callanish Society de Vancouver (C.-B.).

This Pediatrics “Rethinking” Seminar will examine how the ‘voice of the child’ matters in our clinical and research work. How might our approaches stifle children's voices? In this seminar we will confront our assumptions and practices, with the goal of resolving tensions, uncovering gaps and imagining future directions together.

09:00 – 09:10

Welcome and Introduction

Q&A with audience

Chair: Tom Hutchinson

09:00 – 10:30

Ways of Viewing the World

We will describe Satir’s hierarchical and growth models and show the close association between these ways of seeing the world and the contrast between curing and healing in medicine and whole person care. Participants will be led in a process of recognizing their own ways of viewing the world as framework for their lives, the process of medical care, and the rest of the day.

11:00 - 12:30

Iceberg Metaphor

We will explain and explore the ice-berg metaphor and the communication stances as a way of getting to know our whole selves in more depth. This will include a didactic piece, a writing exercise, dyadic discussion, and role plays. We will attempt to uncover participants’ deep longings and yearnings as a source of energy for their work.

14:00 – 15:30

Parts Party

We will facilitate a parts party using one volunteer as the star and participants from the audience to play his/her parts. This will allow attendees to get in touch with and embrace parts of themselves that have been denied or rejected – a further step in discovering the whole person in whole person care.

16:00 – 17:30

Resilience and Whole Person Care

We will do a group exercise identifying the characteristics of an “ideal” healthcare worker and how this relates to resilience and burnout. We will explore the relationship of resilience to bringing our whole person to our work.

Given the framework of 4 levels of knowing (not knowing; knowing; realizing, actualizing) participants will be led in an exercise to review what they have learned during the day and begin to think of ways what they have learned can be actualized in their lives and work.

Closing Remarks


Little Stars: Accomplishing the Extraordinary in the Face of Serious Illness

Little Stars présente les surprenants récits de vie de jeunes gens atteints de maladies très graves. Contre toute attente, ces jeunes profitent au maximum de chaque instant qui leur est donné grâce à l’appui de leurs proches, en harmonie avec des équipes de soins palliatifs passionnées. Raconté par le grand acteur britannique David Suchet (CBE), Little Stars est un film que vous n’oublierez jamais! L’énergie naturelle, la lucidité et la franchise des sentiments de ce documentaire profondément humain marquent irrémédiablement les spectateurs. La projection du film sera suivie d’une période de discussion animée par Dr Hal Siden, professeur clinicien au Département de pédiatrie de l’Université de Colombie-Britannique, et directeur médical du Canuck Place Children's Hospice.
