Values in Healthcare

In developing a conscious values-based approach, participants can rediscover their own peacefulness, think more positively, and act with compassion and cooperation, while putting their own self-care at the center of their efforts. This provides a foundation for addressing how to provide better care for patients while at the same time nurture the self.

 

What is the "Values in Healthcare: A Spiritual Approach" Program?

  • A personal and team development educational program for Healthcare practitioners

  • Designed in a modular experiential workshop format to facilitate the experience of one's own inner core values

  • It incorporates an innovative spiritual approach to address the issues on a personal level and at an organizational level

  • It is based on the premise that for values to be meaningful they must first be experienced at a personal level then integrated at the organizational level

Values in Healthcare Promotes

  • Respect and dignity for every individual practitioner, administrator and patient

  • Well being for all individuals and healthcare environments

  • A positive, safe atmosphere in which people can thrive
