These are some initial questions that arise from this concept:
- How do you measure compassion?
Is it purely subjective or are there objective measures?
Would patient/client rating be the most useful tool?
- How do you measure competence?
It is not just about qualifications and experience – it is about whether this is actually being demonstrated in practice.
- How can this be taken forward to inform national policy?
Is it feasible anyway to do this?
- Is it something that is transferable from the healthcare setting to a wider organisational and managerial modus operandi?
