What is the purpose of Schwartz Rounds and how do they benefit those that take part? In this free webinar we will explore this question and look at the evidence as to their utility and the ability to flatten the hierarchies of management and leadership within an organisation.
The underlying premise for Schwartz Rounds is that the compassion shown by staff can make all the difference to a patient’s experience of care, but that to provide compassionate care staff must, in turn, feel supported in their work. We want to dig into this principle and get the thoughts from Carl and Aggie who are implementing them at a local and national level.
