Empathy: The Human Connection to Patient Care

Cleveland Clinic

Published on Feb 27, 2013

Patient care is more than just healing — it’s building a connection that encompasses mind, body and soul.
If you could stand in someone else’s shoes . . . hear what they hear. See what they see. Feel what they feel. Would you treat them differently?

CEO Toby Cosgrove, MD, shared this video, titled “Empathy,” with the Cleveland Clinic staff during his 2012 State of the Clinic address on Feb. 27, 2013.

Ps. I decided to republish it again today as a reminder to us all to walk in each others shoes at this sometimes difficult time of year.
