Compassion conversations from Careif.

Concern to ensure compassion and empathy are core experiences in care services is now a priority following appalling scandals in care homes and hospital settings. Of course, at a time of economic austerity and threats to health and social services, caring about those in socially excluded groups seems to be less of a priority for governments, national and local. Improving the health and wellbeing of the population at large is one approach to this, that is creating a more compassionate and caring society, within which all citizens can expect fair treatment and supportive concern when they face hard times. However, these aspirations then beg the question, why do we not have compassionate care in care services, and why is society no longer, or no more compassionate. This series of short essays from experts is refreshing and thought provoking. There is depth in the experiences that are shared, some intimate some heartbreaking. Careif is planning to provoke more conversations in compassion and care, so please share your views on this blog, twitter and the Careif feed.
