The European Academy of Caring Science

Caring Science is a feature of nursing curricula in Scandinavia and Caring Theories have predominated in USA nursing since the early 80s. In the UK there remains a lack of clarity in the professional literature regarding the meaning of caring. European ideologies on caring are diversely represented in the literature and there has been little synthesis of these ideas across the continent. As the family of European cultures expands and the trend towards enhanced interdisciplinarity and interprofessional collaboration in health care proceeds, it is timely to consider how these notions can be harmonised into a body of knowledge that furthers the promotion of caring science. The European Academy of Caring Science (EACS) is a collaboration of member institutions with the collective intention of taking forward caring science from a European perspective. The Academy affords an opportunity to work together as individuals or in groups under the auspices of the founding organisations with the aim of generating skills, values and beliefs in a concentrated effort to improve health and social care provision. We intend to share our knowledge and understanding of ‘caring’ and how it will impact on the different levels of a) the individual (both personal and professional) and b) at the policy level of the population.
