More about the Schwartz Center:
- The Schwartz Center was founded in 1995 and is committed to compassionate health care.
- The Schwartz Center supports the Schwartz Rounds program in hundreds of organizations in the U.S., Canada, U.K., Ireland, Australia and New Zealand.
- Schwartz Rounds offer healthcare providers a regularly scheduled time during their fast-paced work lives to openly and honestly discuss the social and emotional issues they face in caring for patients and families.
- Panelists from diverse disciplines participate in the sessions, including physicians, nurses, social workers, psychologists, allied health professionals, chaplains, environmental services, and food services, etc. After listening to a panel’s brief presentation on an identified case or topic, caregivers in the audience are invited to share their own perspectives on the case and broader related issues.
- Schwartz Rounds sessions strengthen the caregiver-patient relationship and remind caregivers why they entered the healthcare profession.
