St. John of God American Region International Healthcare Congress

"Care Ethics at the Service of Health"


Sucre, Bolivia – 27-29 June, 2012

Continuing advances in Medicine and Biotechnology present a constant challenge to keep pace.

The Hospitaller Order of Saint John of God is no exception, because it has always shown particular concern for continuing education and vocational training for the Brothers and the Co-workers.

It was therefore agreed to pool all our efforts and maximise achievements by convening a Congress to address aspects relating to the work of the Order's Centres.

Instead of convening separate meetings to deal with Bioethics and Mental Health Care, it was decided to hold one single event comprising both, together with other issues relating to Critical Care and the increasingly more frequently used "non-interventional medicine” in terms of the type of care we provide.

Under the theme, "Care Ethics at the Service of Health" we are organising the "First International Healthcare Congress: Holistic Care for the Person", in Sucre, Bolivia, on 27, 28 and 29 June, 2012.

We are convinced that these opportunities for the Order to meet at the Regional level provide an excellent opportunity to share experiences which enrich and strengthen us in our daily work for the good of our guests.
