Schwartz Rounds: Group Reflection On Healthcare Delivery
The Point of Care Foundation
About the CPD course
These rounds are a structured confidential multi-disciplinary forum for all staff to come together on a monthly basis to discuss and reflect on the emotional and social aspects of caring for patients. These will give staff support and time and space to reflect on their roles that they might not otherwise have in their everyday routines on busy hospital wards. The facilitators have been trained to deliver according to a structured and evidence-based model
The Foundation is an independent charity working to improve patients experience of care and increase support for the staff who work with them. We support over 200 healthcare organisations in all sectors to transform their culture and put the experiences of staff and patients at the heart of their work. We provide training in Schwartz Rounds and patient-centred service design. Through our Heads of Patient Experience (HOPE) network, we offer peer learning and support and the opportunity for members to learn from best practice.
