Compassion in Practice

Compassionate, collaborative care (the “Triple C”) is an innovative framework that can improve quality, enrich the patient and family experience and support clinician well-being. The Triple C characterizes high quality organizations and can be taught and integrated into daily practice while also acting as an antidote to clinician burnout.
