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.

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