Our 2017 Compassion in Action webinar series teaches some of the concepts and skills that are essential to providing compassionate, collaborative care in ways that matter to patients, families and ourselves. The webinars highlight skills that are components of a framework developed by the Schwartz Center for Compassionate Healthcare and The Arnold P. Gold Foundation, in partnership with the Bucksbaum Institute for Clinical Excellence (University of Chicago) and the Josiah Macy Jr. Foundation.

Each webinar in the 2017 series builds off of the first webinar in 2016, ‘Maximizing the Power of Relationships: Taking Care of Ourselves and Others,’ presented by Dr. Beth Lown. We recommend viewing this webinar prior to watching the other webinars in this series.

The Schwartz Center’s Compassion in Action webinar series is funded in part by a donation in memory of Julian and Eunice Cohen.

Below are videos of past webinars in 2017.
