EACS the european academy of caring science Keynotes: Exploring Care: Directions for practice from the ‘head’, ‘hand’ and ‘heart’ of Dignity: Kate Galvin, Professor of Nursing Practice, Associate Dean Research and Enterprise, University of Hull, UK and Les Todres, Emeritus Professor of Health Philosophy, Bournemouth University, UK. “One of the themes of EACS refers to the need to develop forms of existential knowledge that is particularly relevant to caring. This is challenging as we believe that such complex knowledge addresses the head, hand and the heart. As such, it necessarily cares for not just the content of the knowledge but how it is presented and taken up in practice. This paper will try to illustrate these themes by concentrating one important existential theme: namely Dignity, and how this can be represented in ways that can do justice to its ‘head, heart and hand’.” Opinions of care in a multicultural perspective - Caring Science in multicultural Europe: Maria Kristiansen, Associate Professor, Danish Research Centre for Migration, Ethnicity and Health, University of Copenhagen, DK. “Cultural diversity has become a key feature among citizens in Europe with implications for the provision of care within healthcare and social services. Culture interacts with socioeconomic factors in shaping care needs including opinions of how and where care should be delivered and by whom. In this speech, different perspectives on care needs and challenges in multicultural encounters will be presented including opinions and perceptions among patients, relatives and professionals.Finally, suggestions for future adaptation of care in a multicultural Europe will be presented.” SCIENTIFIC COMMITTEE Clara Aarts, EACS Lisbeth Uhrenfeldt, EACS Lillemor Lindwall, NCCS Edith Mark, NCCS.
