Compassion in action symposium series: Boston

On April 28, the Schwartz Center will convene a panel of experts from the front lines of care who will address some important questions about delivering care during trying times. The first of two Compassion in Action Symposium events hosted by the Schwartz Center in 2016 will be moderated by Gideon Gil, managing editor of STAT News. The program will address the following: In the face of trauma and emotional suffering, what skills and tools can healthcare professionals develop to sustain resiliency? How can organizations and systems support caregivers, enabling them to continue to provide the best possible care for patients and families? What effect can mass tragedies such as Hurricane Katrina, the Boston Marathon Bombing or the Columbine High School shootings have on clinicians, and how can organizations help sustain resiliency in the aftermath?
