The Schwartz Center: Compassion in Action
Physician well-being is an essential element of compassionate patient care—we all struggle to connect and empathize with others when we are struggling ourselves. In recognition of this tendency, The Schwartz Center for Compassionate Healthcare(www.theschwartzcenter.org) offers programs that aim to improve health care delivery by improving support for care providers. For example, their signature Schwartz Rounds® program(www.theschwartzcenter.org), available in health care organizations across the world, provides a safe space for physicians and other care providers to openly discuss with peers the complex issues that arise in patient care.
