What is therapeutic empathy?

What kind of empathy is beneficial to patients and practitioners?

Tuesday, 24th October 2017, Hosted by the Oxford Empathy Programme, University of Oxford 

There is growing evidence to suggest that empathy may benefit patients and practitioners. However, some argue that empathy is impossible to achieve and could even cause harm.

Information and how to submit

Just as I valued being able to present my work abroad (at SAPC), I thought others in the SAPC community might want to do the same thing by presenting here in Canada.  I am a Canadian family physician researcher who has presented at SAPC twice - once as the 2011 SAPC/NAPCRG Travel Prize Recipient (“Nocturnal leg cramps and prescriptions that precede them”) and again in 2014 when I chose to submit another research presentation.
