Every health worker begins with a desire to alleviate suffering and to help patients recover from illness and injury. The capacity for compassion is innate.
Within the dynamics of professional relationships, both individuals and institutions undergo cycles of change, which can be powerfully self-reinforcing. At this time of crisis in healthcare, many people and organizations are spiraling down into stress and disillusionment. But an equally powerful upwards spiral of compassion, caring, positivity and resilience is within easy reach. Which way of being will you choose?
Dr Robin Youngson, the CoFounder of Hearts in Healthcare, is an internationally renowned keynote speaker and pioneer in the subject of compassion in healthcare. He’s captivated audiences in the USA, Canada, the UK, Norway, the Netherlands, the Middle East, Japan, Singapore, Hong Kong, New Zealand and Australia.
“His emotive talk on the difference made by compassion to ourselves, and compassion to others, left all delegates deeply moved and clamoring to get a copy of his book “Time to Care”.
