The Antidote to Suffering:

How Compassionate Connected Care Can Improve Safety, Quality, and Experience


In our efforts to treat patients, cure illness, and manage institutions, healthcare professionals too often overlook the fundamental purpose everyone in the industry shares: to alleviate suffering. Press Ganey’s Chief Nursing Officer, Christina Dempsey, has worked everywhere in healthcare, from the ward floor to the hospital boardroom. She has also experienced the system as a patient and as a family member of a critically ill patient.

In The Antidote to Suffering, this 30-year healthcare veteran and patient-experience thought leader argues that the key to improving healthcare is to reduce the suffering―physical, psychological, and emotional―of patients and caregivers alike through Compassionate Connected CareTM

The Antidote to Suffering can be another valuable resource in your mission to reduce patient suffering and improve the patient experience.
