Without Compassion, There is No Healthcare
In the new book, Without Compassion, There is No Healthcare edited by Brian D. Hodges, Gail Paech, and Jocelyn Bennett, 28 outstanding Canadian healthcare leaders confront the challenges threatening our current and future healthcare system. Across a variety of domains, the authors ask, What is compassion? How can humans ensure that healthcare remains compassionate in an era of emerging and disruptive technologies?
In this excerpt from the book, the introduction by Brian D. Hodges, he looks at the changing landscape of health professional work and “calls upon healthcare professionals, leaders, educators, policy-makers, patients, and families to act: to shape a future in which healthcare is effective, accessible, efficient and also fully anchored in compassion.”
