Value, Context and Narrative in Medical Epistemology and Health Care Practice

4 Mag 2016

Il secondo meeting del Values-Based Practice Theory Network sarà una conferenza di due giorni, dal 3 al 4 maggio 2016, presso il St Catherine’s College di Oxford, dal titolo "Value, context and narrative in Medical Epistemology and Health Care Practice".
La Conferenza è organizzata in partnership dal Collaborating Centre for Values-Practice in Health and Social Care e da Anna Bergqvist del Particularism in Bioethics, Professional Ethics and Medicine Network della Manchester Metropolitan University.
"The theme of this interdisciplinary conference is focused on the theoretical underpinnings of values-based practice, and explores the implications of illness narrative and contextualism for debates about objectivity and value in philosophy of medicine and medical epistemology more generally. It builds on our first conference on Values-Based Practice and Moral Particularism in October 2015, with special attention to philosophy of psychiatry, clinical practice and scientific methodology. By bringing together theorists and practitioners from the disciplines of Philosophy and Psychology our aim is to explore the ways in which normative critical perspectives challenge the implicit or assumed reductive theoretical paradigm of many current models and measures of ‘value’ in health care contexts in developing new integrative and holistic approaches. We hope that the event will open up a dialogue about the ways we might think and argue differently about the benefit of conceptual and evaluative thought in these contexts".
