Compassion in the nursing curriculum: making it more explicit

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The meaning and definition of compassionate care continues to be discussed and debated, as does how it can be measured and whether it can be taught. Nurse educators are faced with this challenge as they plan, develop and deliver a curriculum that seeks to equip nurses and midwives with the knowledge and skills required to practice compassionate care. But how can we teach our students compassionate care? In our compassionate care programme the further embedding of compassionate care into the nursing and midwifery programme is a priority.
