Video Scenarios to Open Dialogues in Catholic Health Ministry

This online learning module on important International Outreach topics is meant to open dialogue across U.S. Catholic health care relating to activities including:

  • Sharing surplus equipment, supplies  and medicines with low-income countries
  • Responding to disasters in low-income countries
  • Conducting medical mission trips or immersion experiences in low-income countries

Each topic has a video scenario – a brief video vignette that provides a situation related to these three activites. Then there are questions for reflection. These are applicaple to personal reflection as well as group discussion. Once the questions have been considered, please listen to an expert who will help you consider your response to each question.

We hope these help leaders understand the implications of conducting international outreach activities while also engaging interested staff and clinicians in dialogue about how we can best live out Catholic tradition and teaching when we help our brothers and sisters in the developing world.
