MERITS OF THE INTERNSHIP PROGRAM IN A HOSPICE FACILITY

M. Ulrichová

Univerzity of Hradec Králové (CZECH REPUBLIC)
Hospice facilities, unlike in the Western countries or North America, were not developed in this country until 1989. They play an irreplaceable role in the last stages of human life as they are places of dignified dying. Nowaday they are frequently attended by various volunteers, including university students. Hospice is a place that offers the saturation of a person’s needs, both the physiological ones and especially mental and spiritual ones, that, for understandable reasons, the hospital care cannot meet in full.

That is why it is so important to evaluate the presence of our students within the internships in such facilities. The survey will enrich the issue by results obtained by monitoring of student interns in hospices. Accommodating and saturation of clients’ needs is the utmost priority of hospices. The care is similar to the home-provided one, i.e. a natural daily routine when a client is in a friendly and familiar atmosphere that offers sufficient communication and the presence of an attentive listener.

The results of the survey are intended to point out the possible issues that the potential care workers may encounter, and thus focus the curriculum in this direction. Education obviously cannot only concentrate on certain amount of knowledge, but is also supposed to raise sensitive, accomplished persons engaging in the hospice care.
