QI Connect session about Compassionomics: the revolutionary scientific evidence that caring makes a difference

Drs Trzeciak and Mazzarelli will tell the story of their two-year journey through the data in the biomedical literature to test the hypothesis that compassion matters – for patients, for patient care, and for those who care for patients.

Recent reports indicate that health care is currently in the midst of a compassion crisis. But the pivotal question is this: Does compassion really matter?

Of course health care providers have a moral imperative to treat patients with compassion, and compassion is a cornerstone of the "art" of medicine.

But is compassion just in the art of medicine, or are there also evidence-based effects of compassion belonging in the science of medicine? And, what is the evidence?

Participants in this online session on 27 January will learn that compassion matters – in not just meaningful ways, but also measurable ways.
