Lifeworld-led Care and Education

The lifeworld refers to the meanings of everyday life, what it is like to exist as a human being. The concept of the lifeworld has its foundation in Husserl´s lifeworld theory and theory of intentionality; Merleau Ponty´s later philosophy concerning how everything is intertwined existence as well as his contribution to lifeworld theory as the lived body and Heidegger´s contribution "being-in-the-world". In addition Gadamer´s ideas about shared understanding and contributions to lifeworld theory developed further by other continental philosophers such as Levinas, but not exclusively. Drawing on this European heritage we are interested in how lived experience can offer direct insights for caring science, what we have named lifeworld led care.

We include a focus on care and practice and also learning to care; lifeworld led education. Here we are interested in the creative tension between the lifeworld of the patient and the lifeworld of the student and carer. In other words, specifically the intertwining of learning and caring. The focus of lifeworld led education concerns developing learning strategies for learners that use reflective supervision models that encompass reflection on the patients' lifeworld. At the core of the process are ways to help students move from a students' perspective towards the patients' lifeworld and what directions for care can found there.
