HLN: Beyond the Basics Virtual Opportunity #1 of 11
Compassion requires more than feeling sympathy – it compels individuals to actively participate in or experience another’s hardship. In health care, compassion is crucial and is just as important in helping patients manage chronic and acute conditions as it is during the final stages of life.
Compassionate care addresses a patient’s intrinsic need for connection and relationships and is based on attentive listening and a desire to understand the patient’s context and perspective. Webinar attendees discovered how compassion is the key to making medical care truly patient and family centered.
