Lupina Centre Mission Questions

Based on the Lupina Centre's conviction that truly comprehensive care of the sick--and in some cases the dying--must address all aspects of health and human flourishing, the Lupina Centre will seek to address such questions as: What is human flourishing?That is, what does it mean to say that a person is healthy in mind, body, and spirit? Correlatively, what is the relationship among mental, physical, moral, and spiritual health? More specifically, how will a more comprehensive view of the human person and human health shape our administration and delivery of health care?  How does suffering fit into human flourishing and how does our view of suffering affect the way we administer healthcare to the sick and dying?  How does our view of the human person affect the patient-healthcare professional relationship and the other relationships surrounding a sick person (family, firends, other healthcare providers)?
