Culture of Empathy Builder:  Robin Youngson


Robin Youngson and Edwin Rutsch: How to Build a Culture of Empathy in Healthcare

Robin Youngson is an anesthesiologist in New Zealand. He is an International leader in the compassionate healthcare movement and founded HEARTS in HEALTHCARE which is an inspirational community of health professionals, students, patient advocates, health leaders, and many others who are champions for compassionate care. "We believe bringing like-minded people together is the first step to re-humanizing healthcare around the world".
Robin is author of TIME TO CARE: How to love your patients and your job. He says, "my passion is to restore the heart of healthcare and to make caring and compassion the daily lived experience and practice of all in healthcare. Health professionals need compassion and caring in the workplace as much as patients - the rates of burnout, emotional exhaustion and hopelessness are far too high."
