Call For Papers

Given the nature of what they do, healthcare workers, particularly those who interact with the terminally ill, are called to respond to an audience in the process of dying. They create their own palliative impulse by converting a fusion of detachment and rhetorical invention into an appropriately purposeful message.

What is the nature of such communication? How should such communication (1) provide relief from pain and other distressing symptoms, (2) affirm life, (3) regard dying as a normal process, (4) integrate psychological and spiritual aspects of patient care, (5) contribute to helping patients live as actively as possible until death, (6) contribute to helping the family cope during the patient’s illness and in their own bereavement, (7) use a team approach to address the needs of patients and their families, including bereavement counseling, if implicit, and (8) enhance quality of life, possibly influencing the course of illness?

This symposium, designed to facilitate interdisciplinary, multidisciplinary and transdisciplinary approaches to the many and varied issues germane to these issues, aims to cover as wide a range of viewpoints as possible from among experienced practitioners and theoreticians alike.

All interested in participating are invited to submit, upon thoughtful consideration of the points enumerated above, a 250-word Abstract, .pdf formatted, in response to any one of them, no later than February 1, 2016, to the Submissions Editor. Notifications will be emailed March 15, 2016, with a list of presenters, their Abstracts, and their biographies, together with biographies of both the keynote speaker and the Chairs, being emailed by April 15, 2016.

Submissions will be double-blind reviewed. The venue will be announced by January 15, 2016; the financial details by February 15, 2016. The anticipated registration fee is 145.00 Euro.
