Practicing with Compassion Improves Outcomes for Providers and Patients: Mastering Resilience at Work

Practicing with Compassion Improves Outcomes for Providers and Patients: Mastering Resilience at Work

 Compassion is the practice of being present in the moment in order to acknowledge and attempt to relieve our patients' pain and suffering. The ability to exercise compassion can provide a positive change in the environment, improve physical health and increase comfort and ease for the patient and the provider. Please join us as Dr. Doty presents research evidence and provides his own perspective on how the science of compassion can help both the provider and the patient remain balanced and resilient.
