Compassion in healthcare: Are we on track or is there more that can be done?

Presented by Dr Debbie Ling

What does the current evidence tell us about the state of compassion in healthcare? Are we in the midst of a compassion crisis in Australia?

This presentation explores the latest compassion research, barriers and facilitators to compassion and key factors that impact on compassionate health service delivery.

There will be a consideration of how to sustain and strengthen compassion in healthcare incorporating both bottom up and top down approaches.

This presentation will be useful for anyone working in healthcare, patients and consumers of the service and those in leadership and policy positions.
