Background: Compassionate behaviour is an integral
part of delivering good outcomes in healthcare
however this behaviour is not always enacted. We
developed a compassion toolkit that could be used to
initiate discourse around this area of practice.Using
the compassion toolkit we explored whether
promoting positive acts of compassion to
undergraduate students across four health
professions (medicine, physiotherapy, occupational
therapy and nursing) would impact on their
professional and compassionate care practice
Summary of Work: Students were asked to record
acts of compassion seen within their clinical
placements. The students then came together for a
research workshop to analyse the themes and write a
narrative around the effect of witnessing these acts
had on their practice.
