Compassionate Connected Care: A Care Model To Reduce Patient Suffering

Added on Jan 19, 2015

The Compassionate, Connected Care model provides a framework to address unmet patient needs and reduce suffering by delivering optimal patient care.  To define the themes of this model and translate them into compelling actions for clinicians, more than 100 care providers and patients were asked to provide one-sentence "image statements" that reflected their notions of compassionate and connected care.

The results: six themes emerged from this exercise detailing how providers can use these themes to target improvement activities.
