The Schwartz Center for Compassionate Healthcare, located in Boston, was founded to advocate for the importance of providing compassion for and fostering relationships with patient's receiving care. This summer, the center hosted its inaugural Compassion in Action Healthcare Conference. Among the topics discussed was the data indicating that many people, healthcare providers and non providers alike, are concerned about the direction compassionate care practices are heading in. They worry about its current state but are also concerned about the impacts that the evolving healthcare system may have upon the ability to maintain compassionate practices. On February 13th, Dr. Ronald Lacro will speak about the importance of religion, spirituality, and compassionate care in the medical field.
