Details

Health Care LogoPatient-centred care has long been recognised as a key factor in improving patient experience, with the Department of Health saying in 2008, “It is about the patient’s entire experience of the NHS and ensuring they are treated with compassion, dignity and respect in a clean, safe and well-managed environment”. Hilary will be exploring the role confidence plays in enabling kindness and compassion within healthcare teams and providing an understanding of what organisations can do to build confidence across their workforce.
