Spring of poetry: The beauty of care

The LABEAUTEDUSOIN.NET website is dedicated to the “poetry of care”. Its ambition is to become a resource that can be integrated into clinical practice in hospitals or nursing homes.

On the occasion of the Spring of Poetry, an audio recording of a poem will be published every day. The poems can be seen as part of a medical procedure, as an opportunity for exchanges between patients and carers or simply as compositions available to everyone. This project is a poetic experiment. Comments describing emotions and feelings experienced are collected.

Among others, you will find a beautiful poem, “Contre le jour”, by Julie Delaloye, physician and poet at the origin of many initiatives to promote poetry at the Lausanne University Hospital and other health institutions of the Canton.
