Abstract

The importance of compassionate care in health and social care has been brought to the fore in recent years by high-profile public inquiries into the mistreatment and sometimes deaths of patients at, for example, Morecambe Bay and Mid Staffordshire hospitals.

This free online course will explore the issue of compassionate care in relation to the key points from these investigations, and from other theoretical perspectives. This includes the need to create a common, person-centred culture across organisations. This person-centredness is not limited to patients, but extends to the way organisations treat staff and to the culture within the organisation itself.
