Without Compassion There Is No Healthcare

New technologies are transforming healthcare work and changing how patients interact with healthcare providers. As artificial intelligence systems, robotics, and data analytics become more sophisticated, some clinical tasks will become obsolete and others will be reconfigured. While it is not possible to predict these developments precisely, it is important to understand their inevitability and to prepare for the changes that lie ahead. Without Compassion, There Is No Healthcare argues that compassion must be upheld as the bedrock and guiding purpose of healthcare work. Emerging technologies have the potential to subvert this purpose but also to enable and expand it, creating new conduits for compassionate care. Cultivating these benefits and guarding against potential threats will require vigilance and determination from healthcare providers, educators, leaders, patients, and advocates. The contributors to this book show the way forward, bringing a diverse range of expertise to confront these challenges. Avoiding platitudes and simple dichotomies, they examine what compassion in healthcare means and how it can be practised, now and in the uncertain future. Without Compassion, There Is No Healthcare is a call to action. Drawing together a decade of evidence and insight generated by a community of leading scholars and practitioners committed to promoting compassionate care, it offers steady principles and practices to steer the way through times of technological change.

Many nurses start their career in healthcare because they are motivated by compassion for others. They choose the nursing profession because they want to be of significance to people who are ill or otherwise troubled. For most of them, compassion remains their main reason for staying at work in nursing jobs every day, despite low wages and a high workload. Care users, such as patients in hospitals and people who need care at home or in a nursing home facility, value nurses who see what is important for them and who show their compassion. It’s therefore remarkable that compassion is not always perceived as an explicit value in nursing practice and education. Questioning this, an explanation might be that it is difficult to fit compassion into the hectic ways of daily practice. Also, in most healthcare systems, every professional is held accountable for the care and quality of care one delivers, and in which evidence-based practice is the golden standard. How does compassion fit into that paradigm? Isn’t compassion a rather old-fashioned and ‘soft’ phenomenon for nurses who are proud to be professionals? This book formulates answers to those and other questions about compassion as a core value for nursing. It shows that compassion is indispensable for good quality of nursing care and even a necessity for evidence-based nursing practice. The book is based on several research studies performed by the author.

Terrible events are very hard to deal with and those who go through a trauma often feel permanently changed by it. Grief, numbness, anger, anxiety and shame are all very common emotional reactions to traumatic incidents such as an accident or death of a loved one, and ongoing traumatic events such as domestic abuse. How we deal with the aftermath of trauma and our own emotional response can determine how quickly we are able to 'move on' and get back to 'normality' once more. An integral part of the recovery process is not only recognising and accepting how our lives may have been changed but also learning to deal with feelings of shame - an extremely common reaction to trauma. 'Recovering from Trauma' uses the groundbreaking Compassion Focused Therapy to help the reader to not only develop a fuller understanding of how we react to trauma, but also to deal with any feelings of shame and start to overcome any trauma-related difficulties.
