Are you struggling to find time to focus on compassion and care for your patients due to ever changing health care regulations and insurance requirements? Do you want to be energized by the role of non-clinical factors and their impact on clinical outcomes? Can you remember the last time you actually connected with a patient and made a positive physical and emotional impact on them?

The current ills of health care, including immense fear and constant change, have caused professionals to replace care, compassion, and empathy with compliance and adherence to “cookbook medicine.” Focusing on this uncertainty can shut down creativity and limit potential.

Embrace and engage the significant evidence around empathy, listening, high-quality connections and the science of positive psychology with the Called to Care Course that focuses on the non-clinical factors that impact successful clinical outcomes.
