Voir la personne derrière la pathologie : enjeux anthropologiques et psychologiques d’une recommandation de bonne pratique

Abstract : In this contribution we offer a Spinozist reading of the best practice guideline “Seeing the person behind the pathology”. It seemed worthy to ask ourselves the following question: when providing care to a sick patient, what does this involve, from an anthropological and psychological point of view, for the caregiver? Won’t this risk placing the caregiver, who faces tragic situations on a daily basis during his or her professional practice, in personal danger? These questions lead us to follow two lines of thought. Firstly, to reflect on a new ethical anthropology of the caregiving relationship, beyond the great disembodied principles of bioethics. Secondly, to allow room once more for the caregiver’s natural and affective body in the caregiving relationship, and what the caregiver feels about the situation beyond or alongside medical imaging and analysis. These lines of thought themselves have resulted in practical experiments: allowing caregivers to experience other ways of being affected and encouraging them to actively contribute to participatory ethical reflection on their practice. In return, this involves putting aside the immediacy of expected effects, and to place healthcare ethics in a broad temporal perspective in a continually renewed future.
