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.

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.
