“Take care while remaining human”: students from Ifsi de Montluçon (Allier) learn about humanity

Within the nursing training institute (Ifsi) of Montluçon, the 67 new students, of all ages, proposed a first project around humanitude.

“It’s a concept based on four pillars: speaking, looking, touching and finally verticality, that is to say getting up to the patient, bending down, or helping him to get up. explains Maxime Bellœuf, one of the students.
Behind him, panels display the work done by the different groups in his class. In the middle of the drawings of flowers and trees, the pupils wrote words with strong connotations: generosity, delicacy, respect.

The short history of humanity

The concept of humanitude was popularized almost 40 years ago. Particularly suitable for the care of the elderly, it has also proven itself in the support of patients with Alzheimer’s.

It is based on four pillars: touch, speech, gaze and verticality. The latter takes into account the need for humans, bipedal by nature, to be at the same level as their immediate surroundings, in order to have a good perception of the world.

“Humanity pushes us to think about our way of caring for patients. This is the heart of our concerns,” says Rémi Laclémence, also a student at Ifsi.

A common goal

“This concept reminds us that we must remain human”, supports Mary Verrier, delegate of its promotion. A current imperative, while French hospitals are finding it increasingly difficult to find enough staff to meet the social needs of their patients.

Behind the four pillars of humanity, the 67 newcomers to Ifsi were able to get to know each other. “They come from very different backgrounds, but realize that they all have the same goal,” explains Anne Delamare, health training manager.Behind the four pillars of humanity, the 67 newcomers to Ifsi were able to get to know each other. “They come from very different backgrounds, but realize that they all have the same goal”, presents Anne Delamare (right).

A common will that commands the admiration of some. “Patrick comes from the industry. It’s not at all the same environment but it shares the same values ​​as us! We are here to take care of others,” says Rémi Laclémence.
