Imagine that your colleague had by chance seen the same inspiring video, or read the same story, or seen a presentation that really moved you. Perhaps it was something that inspired you both to reflect on your roles as a health professional, to think more deeply about compassion and caring?
Wouldn’t it be a great conversation when you discovered your shared interest? And the opportunity to discuss the material probably helped reinforce the lessons for you.
We think this might be a great way to stimulate a program of peer-support among health professionals. What if each week you both viewed one of the world’s most inspiring talks or videos relevant to compassionate healthcare, then sat down to talk about it? It could easily be done by video chat if you don’t live in the same place.
Researchers in California have tried just this strategy and had remarkable results.
