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.
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 partnership with Seattle Children’s Hospital, we’ve developed a video representing the faces and spirit behind workforce well-being. In our 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
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.
