As much as there is a need to help individuals become more resilient and heal from the devastating effects of burnout, we must also support their resilience to support healthy interprofessional collaborations and to grow the stamina and fortitude to raise their voices for systems change. In other words, compassionate care is a team sport, and we must endeavor to infuse compassion into the systems of care that health professionals co-create, participate in, and ultimately transform.   

The CCI Learning Series features programming for health workers – healthcare professionals, caregivers, students, faculty, staff, and community members – all of whom have a shared interest in relieving human suffering compassionately.  The CCI Learning Series particularly targets sessions on increasing wellbeing, improving collaboration, and using voice and leadership to provide compassionate care.     

Upon completion of the learning activity, participants should be able to:

  • Describe issues and obstacles to wellbeing, collaboration, and voice in the context of compassionate healthcare
  • Understand the benefits of improving wellbeing, collaboration, and leadership for compassionate care
  • Practice skills related to resilience, collaboration, and leadership for compassionate care
  • Apply lessons learned in their own healthcare setting
  • Model behaviors that foster wellbeing, collaboration, and leadership to grow and sustain compassionate care
