Shifts in paradigms that govern the concepts and views of disability
Following nomination by the faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences of Ghent University nominated, Prof. Dr. Bernard Dan holds the Collen-Francqui Chair for 2022-2023.
Prof. Dan will present a series of lectures on the shifts in paradigms that govern the concepts and views of disability we use in clinical practice, research, and society. The series consists of 10 individual lectures. The entire series of lectures can be found at https://www.ugent.be/ge/reva/nl/collen-francqui-dan.
This is the first lecture of the series and is entitled Ethics in Paediatric Rehabilitation – a debate based on clinical examples. This lecture is organised as part of the 10-day International course on Pediatric Rehabilitation offered by the Department of Rehabilitation Sciences of Ghent University in collaboration with the Ghent University Association partners and the Child Rehabilitation Centre, University Hospital Ghent. The module, organised as a meeting platform for different disciplines and nationalities, is attended by up to 70 students and international staff. Students work in groups to develop individual rehabilitation programs for children currently receiving care at the Child Rehabilitation Centre, University Hospital Ghent. These clinical case examples will provide the content for a debate concerning ethical considerations in pediatric rehabilitation.
