簡介
疾病侵害的只是我們的身體嗎?病人都感激「治癒」他們疾病的醫生?如果不,那是為什麼?有東西比生命更重要嗎?科技是否足以拯救生命以及人的尊嚴?今日的醫護人員為何灰心消沈?現代醫學缺少了甚麼?到底,醫學是科學,還是人文?
從醫學院畢業以來,三十年的行醫經驗讓沈祖堯對生命的意義有深刻的反思。他從病人身上學懂很多重要課題,沙士一役更讓他及其他醫護人員上了寶貴的一課。在這次的講座,沈祖堯將分享這許多的經驗及想法,並討論我們該如何看待生與死。

Brief Description
Do diseases merely cause suffering of the human body? Do patients always feel grateful to doctors who “cure” their medical illness? If not, why? Is there something more important than life? Is technology sufficient to save life and dignity of human being? Why medical doctors and nurses felt down-hearted these days? What is missing in modern day medicine? … Is Medicine a Science or an Art?
Graduated from medical school for 30 years, Joseph Sung will share with you how he sees meaning of living, how patients reflect to him what is important, what SARS has taught him and other medical professionals, and how we should face life and death.
