Compassion has been shown to improve many dimensions of healthcare, including patient health outcomes, patient satisfaction, clinician well-being, team well-being, and quality and process of care. While compassion is an inherent quality we all have as human beings, it is an orientation and skill that can be cultivated and strengthened so that it becomes the default place from which we approach and respond to any situation. Compassion is an especially important skill for healthcare professionals to develop in response to burnout and exponential stress due to the pandemic. The skills to manage stress, calm the nervous system, and process emotions such as anxiety, fear, anger, and grief are all the more important.

Beginning July 2020, CPCA and the Compassion Institute are offering a six-week Compassion at Work: Preventing Burnout in Health Care series. This program is designed to equip healthcare professionals with the tools and skills to care for their own well-being, which will ultimately also benefit the patients and  communities they serve.

The Compassion Institute (CI) is a global advocate for compassion education, programs, and research. Their work was initiated at Stanford University School of Medicine Neurosciences Institute in 2009 to support human health, well-being, and interpersonal relationships within organizations and communities. Programs are developed by thought leaders and industry experts in compassion science and education, contemplative science, psychology, healthcare, and social sciences.
