2017 Compassion in Action Webinar Series

Compassionate, Collaborative Care – working together to bring compassion into daily practice

Amidst the rapid changes in healthcare, how can healthcare professionals and staff sustain and deepen the caring and compassion that draws them to this profession? How can caregivers most effectively engage patients and each other to improve the quality of care and achieve better outcomes?

Recent neuroscience developments demonstrate that our brains are constantly being reshaped by our everyday experiences. With intention and practice, we can change the way our brains respond to the continuous flow of information, distractions, emotional reactions and interpersonal challenges. Through skills development and practice, we can strengthen the sense of reward and purpose in our work that is the antidote to burnout, build effective teams, and relate to patients and families more effectively.

Please join us for a new year-long webinar series on Compassionate, Collaborative Care – “The Triple C.” We’ll teach some of the concepts and skills that are essential to providing compassionate, collaborative care in ways that matter to patients, families and ourselves. The skills we’ll highlight are components of a framework co-developed by the Schwartz Center for Compassionate Healthcare and The Arnold P. Gold Foundation, with support and guidance from the Bucksbaum Institute for Clinical Excellence (University of Chicago) and the Josiah Macy Jr. Foundation.

Together we will learn how to sustain compassion and collaboration in healthcare while sustaining our well-being.
