Schwartz Center for Compassionate Healthcar : Stories of Compassionate Care with NPR’s Robin Young

Schwartz Center for Compassionate Healthcare

NPR’s Robin Young and five other amazing women shared their powerful stories and lessons of compassionate healthcare at our 12th Annual Celebration of Women in Healthcare last week at Tufts Health Plan. The following themes resonated with us:

• As hard as it is for patients to sometimes receive compassionate care, it can be equally challenging for caregivers to provide it.

• Compassionate care is not just about caring for the patient, it’s about caring for the entire family.

• Compassionate care is overcoming your own prejudices and putting yourself in the patient’s shoes.
