La prise en compte de la souffrance spirituelle chez les personnes en situation de maladie grave en biographie hospitalière au centre hospitalier Mémorial France/États-Unis de Saint-Lô

Abstract : Proponents of humanistic medicine believe that, since several dimensions of the human being can be affected, it is their responsibility to consider them. Thus, in addition to the physical dimension, the psychological dimension of seriously ill patients has been taken into the psychological dimension of seriously ill patients has been taken into account for some decades, as well as the social social dimension. The recent inclusion of the spiritual dimension, although recommended by world health authorities, reveals the singularity of France on this point. The consideration of spiritual suffering in France is thus marked by its its history. With regard to the spiritual dimension, this thesis draws up a panorama of the French societal context and the orientations of contemporary medicine. It also proposes a definition of spirituality and spiritual suffering in the medical context. The components of hospital biography are analysed as potential echoes of the spiritual suffering of a person in a situation of serious illness; hospital biography is articulated with the work of a health care team, in order to provide complementarity for the frail person, as well as for the health care service, through the singularity of its role as a "bridge" in time, space and relationships. Taking spiritual suffering into account tends to help all people in situations of serious illness to find themselves beyond the labels constructed by their individual experience in society, towards an "essential" of themselves. The label of "patient", although indispensable, is only one of many in the history of their life.
