Guy's Hospital explores Values and Compassion

Guy's Hospital explores Values and Compassion

Guy’s hospital – October 2014

In response to The Francis Report, an in-house team at Guy’s hospital, including clinical governance facilitator Deirdre O’Toole, organized a half-day workshop on Values and Compassion in Healthcare, for nursing staff of the renal directorate. The aims of this workshop were met through guided and experiential sessions from VIHASA. Ten nursing staff attended from the renal & urology directorate and the workshop included presentations on aspects of safe working as well as experiencing Values and Compassion. Feedback included these comments:

…different from other study days …Although the theme was basically around improving patient care, I felt that nurses’ feelings, emotions and thoughts about …their patients and working environment was considered …good experience …focuses one’s attention on areas in personal and professional life that need improving!

The organisers concluded: ‘The workshop seems to have been of value to staff. The format and content could be adjusted next time … to further explore professional values.
