UCAV opens a space for interdisciplinary discussion to address the humanization of healthcare

On Tuesday, July 9, the Catholic University of Avila (UCAV) launched the Permanent Forum on Medicine and Health Sciences, an initiative that aims to create a space for debate, training and research focused on the humanization of healthcare. The presentation included the participation of professionals from the health and academic fields, and was carried out in collaboration with the Ortega Marañón Foundation.

The Dean of UCAV, Mr. Del Rosario Saez Yuguero, opened the forum highlighting the importance of this initiative, “It is a great satisfaction for me to present this project today, which aims to be a space for discussion, training and research in aspects of health from a multidisciplinary point of view. In our Faculty of Health Sciences we offer degrees such as Physiotherapy, Psychology, Nursing, Nutrition and Dietetics, and we are preparing to integrate Medicine. This forum will allow us to work on these issues, uniting faculty and disseminating knowledge, in addition to attracting scientists and collaborators.

The University President highlighted the participation of Fernando Bandrés Moya, Professor of Forensic Medicine at the Complutense University of Madrid, as the first speaker. “Today we will discuss the issue of humanizing medicine, which is fundamental in the field of health care. We want this forum to be a space for knowledge and collaboration, generating thought and addressing current issues in health sciences,” said Sáez-Yuguero.

Fernando Bandrés Moya, Director of the Gregorio Marañón Study Center, gave a speech at the opening conference entitled “New Paths in Humanizing Healthcare.” In his speech, Bandrés stressed that “talking about humanization today is the great challenge of the 21st century, justified by technological progress, changes in patient rights and healthcare, as well as demographic change. “More than just dehumanizing the system, we must talk about a new humanization to face current challenges.”

The forum is open to healthcare professionals, students, and anyone interested in the topic. Although it will initially be conducted in person, the possibility of streaming some sessions in the future is being evaluated to facilitate greater access and participation.
