Educational Activities

The Foundation’s activities are directed towards supporting compassion in healthcare, particularly through raising awareness of the need to support practitioner wellbeing. A team of volunteers, aided by scientific and medical advisors, run a range of events including seminars, lectures, workshops, trainings, conferences and retreats. These are primarily for healthcare professionals, care givers and patients but open to others who may be interested. All activities are funded through voluntary contributions from well-wishers and participants, and are offered without charge. The Foundation also works with NHS Trusts, hospices and other healthcare organisations to introduce ideas and understandings that help to sustain whole-person healthcare.

Values in Healthcare

The Foundation’s flagship project is Values in Healthcare: a spiritual approach (VIHASA), a modular personal and team development programme supporting practitioner wellbeing. First published in 2004, the programme has been translated into more than a dozen languages and is in use in more than 30 countries. The results have been universally positive, with caregivers reporting a renewed sense of purpose, reduced risk of exhaustion and burnout, and improved patient care. More details can be found on the Foundation’s website.

The full VIHASA pack can be downloaded from the website without a charge. The printed pack which comes in a binder can also be purchased online at a very reasonable price.

Social Media Survey

Dear All,


Hope you have had an enjoyable summer. 


We are in the process of reviewing the Janki Foundation's social media content, which includes our website. 


Studies have indicated that different healthcare professionals have variable use of social media platforms, and they will make recommendations to patients or colleagues based on their confidence and reliability of information. In the current climate of healthcare crisis and information overload, we would benefit from an understanding on how spirituality-related information is accessed by healthcare professionals. This will enable us to focus our messages, events and outreach. 


We would greatly welcome your valuable thoughts through this survey. It is anonymous and will take less than 10 minutes to complete. 


Thank you.

Best wishes, 

JF Social Media Review Group
