Event description

Description

More and more evidence suggests that empathy improves patient outcomes and practitioner well-being, yet the extent to which practitioners express empathy is variable. This workshop will cover the theory and practice of empathy in healthcare, showing how individuals can enhance empathy in own work and in their organisations.

Who is this course for?

Practitioners and managers in health and social care who want to further understand and develop empathy based practice.

During this workshop you will

  • Review the evidence linking empathy with improved patient, practitioner, and system outcomes.
  • Provide healthcare practitioners with personalised evidence-based empathy techniques they can use in their practice to improve patient outcomes as well as their well-being.
  • Create strategies to form ‘empathy habits’.
  • Develop a personal plan to enhance empathy in your day-to-day work.

About the teaching team

Dr. Jeremy Howick Director, Oxford Empathy Programme

Dr Howick's research draws on his interdisciplinary training as a philosopher of science and clinical epidemiologist. He has published over 75 academic papers and a book on Evidence-Based Medicine and placebo effects. One of his main findings was that the way practitioners communicate hope and empathy can improve clinical outcomes and make practitioner quality of life better. He now focuses on implementing this research into practice by drawing on his extensive teaching and mentoring experience.
