Cultivating Compassionate Care During Residency Training in Paediatrics

This fellowship seeks to incorporate a longitudinal integrated educational approach to the paediatric residency training program with a focus on enhancing therapeutic encounters between healthcare providers and patients and families. This approach will engage paediatric residents though: (1) Narrative medicine competency based curriculum; (2) Mandatory community engagement experiences to learn from patients and their families within a societal context and about the inter-professional collaborations that support the patients and families we serve; and (3) Simulation experiences which focus on the further development of relational, participatory and advocacy skills of the physician and opportunity for debriefing from the perspective of patients and families.
