Symposium Series on Burnout Continues in New York City

The second part of our Compassion in Action symposium series on “Remaining Resilient on the Front Lines of Care,” was held at the Sony Club on June 17 in partnership with the Greater New York Hospital Association. Following a thought-provoking discussion on the rising epidemic of “clinician burnout” in the face of mass tragedy and trauma in Boston in April, this event focused on systemic barriers to healthcare workforce well-being.

Making Compassionate Healthcare a National Priority

Clinician burnout has reached epidemic levels, threatening a strong caregiver-patient relationship defined by trust, mutual respect and compassion. In a Health Affairs Blog post, we call on stakeholders to prioritize solutions that enable the kind of care that both clinicians and patients desire and deserve.

Compassion in Practice Continuing Education

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. Our groundbreaking, interprofessional Harvard Medical School continuing education course is designed to enhance communication skills, optimize professional relationships and our ability to work in teams, while improving efficiency and enjoyment of clinical practice.
