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

Compassionate, collaborative care (the “Triple C”) is an innovative framework that can improve quality, enrich the patient and family experience and support clinician well-being. The Triple C characterizes high quality organizations and can be taught and integrated into daily practice while also acting as an antidote to clinician burnout.
