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.

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
