This presentation will provide an overview of the state of compassion in healthcare and the need for compassion to improve the clients’/patients’ experience. Our speakers will introduce and present the evidence for the Sinclair Compassion Questionnaire – the most valid and reliable, patient-oriented experience measure of compassion for clinical use and research.
