National Scorecard on Compassion
Through support from the Arthur Vining Davis Foundations, the Schwartz Center released initial results from a national poll of clinicians and patients on the state of compassionate care delivery. As a follow-up to the original national survey that was conducted in 2010, the new data suggests that the healthcare system has been making some progress in moving towards more-patient centered care, but still faces critical challenges, especially from the perspective of physicians and nurses.

Compassion in Practice
