Study: Measuring the impact of a 3D simulation experience on nursing students' cultural empathy using a modified version of the Kiersma-Chen Empathy Scale

Study: Measuring the impact of a 3D simulation experience on nursing students' cultural empathy using a modified version of the Kiersma-Chen Empathy Scale | Empathy and HealthCare | Scoop.it

To determine the effect of immersive 3D cultural simulation on nursing students' empathy towards culturally and linguistically diverse patients.


BACKGROUND:
Accelerated globalisation has seen a significant increase in cultural diversity in most regions of the world over the past forty years. Clinical encounters that do not acknowledge cultural factors contribute to adverse patient outcomes and health care inequities for culturally and linguistically diverse people. Cultural empathy is an antecedent to cultural competence. Thus, appropriate educational strategies are needed to enhance nursing students' cultural empathy and the capacity to deliver culturally competent care.


RESULTS: Students' empathy towards culturally and linguistically diverse patients significantly improved after exposure to the 3D simulation experience. The mean scores for the Perspective Taking and Valuing Affective Empathy subscales also increased significantly postsimulation.

These future doctors aren’t playwrights, but they’ll play them on Tuesday.

That’s when the students of Thomas Jefferson University’s Sidney Kimmel Medical College team up with Lantern Theater Company to present “The Truth Beneath: Five Stories You Haven’t Heard From Your Provider.”

The evening of short plays is the culmination of the second year of “The Empathy Project,” a partnership between Jefferson and Lantern that's intended to foster empathy and creativity among healthcare students and professionals.

Lantern artistic director Charles McMahon refers to the project as “an emotional flight simulator.” By writing and enacting different scenarios in the classroom, he says, medical students who are used to facing incredible stress can “flex their emotional and interpersonal muscles in ways that sharpen them.

Is Compassion Missing From the Medical Curriculum?

Is Compassion Missing From the Medical Curriculum? | Empathy and HealthCare | Scoop.it
As outlined in the Principles of Medical Ethics of the American Medical Association, physicians should demonstrate compassion and respect for human rights.

 

Compassion, empathy, and sympathy are emotions necessary in the delivery of ethical medical care.  However, in a healthcare environment that is moving toward being more technical and business-focused, it is becoming increasingly difficult for clinicians to balance the business of practicing medicine with the humanistic needs of their patients.

 

In addition, the persistent indiscriminate use of insensitive and inappropriate language can undermine the physician/patient relationship.

 

To this end, a team of clinicians from the

  • Center for Medical Ethics and Health Policy at Baylor College of Medicine, in Houston, Texas, and
  • Sutter Health/California Pacific Medical Center, in San Francisco, California,

conducted a review of empathy in medical training.

Healthcare Lacks Empathy & Compassion

I don't know if compassion is missing in Med School, but I can tell you hospitals SUCK at it. I've been a cancer patient for 11 years. I appreciate and am thankful for hard working doctors, nurses and administrators who've saved my life. 

But, I'm here to tell you hospitals SUCK at seeing me, my feelings, fears and needs. Social media provides a great example of the problem. I create content, share and talk about the James Cancer Center in Ohio all the time (as I am now). 

They've liked one of my posts (I think), never responded, never said THANK YOU and never followed me back. What exactly does the James Cancer Center team think social media is FOR anyway? My following DWARFS theres (nearing 80,000 now on 7 social nets), and yet in  the social world they continue to think of themselves as PAPA and me as annoying CHILD. 

 

I'm a James DONOR too and giving them MONEY was much like my experience with them on social media - as if giving them $1,000 was to be expected and didn't require THANKS, appreciation or other signs of "digital listening". 

Medicine is not used to being a conversation. We the lowly an stupid patients are to wait to be told what almighty docs are to do with our sorry asses. News Bulletin to hospital, you aren''t any SMARTER than anyone else you just know something we don't. 

Could my friends and I confuse, obfuscate and generally treat hospitals like crap when it comes to SEO, digital marketing and the stuff WE KNOW? You bet, but we have EMPATHY for those who are just learning about digital communication and branding NOW. We want to HELP instead of puff ourselves up into an unrealistic and unsustainable world of ONE. 

No one does ANYTHING alone anymore especially not medicine or climbing the Mt. Everest that is digital marketing. If Hospitals like the James want the army of Sherpas needed to climb today's Everest they need to walk and talk empathy and compassion on social media AND in the exam rooms (and don't get me started on that :).

Medical Students Are Losing Touch With Their Own Empathy

Medical Students Are Losing Touch With Their Own Empathy | Empathy and HealthCare | Scoop.it
Empathy is the cornerstone of compassionate and effective patient care, though the concept is more often seen as an abstract ideal rather than as a definitive principle of patient-physician interaction.  This topic is frequently at the center of discussions surrounding medical ethics, as it is an ever-evolving human concern that affects both doctors and patients, inside hospital walls and during everyday life.

Given the amount of discourse, it is surprising that empathy and compassion are  topics most doctors don’t recall openly discussing since their ethics class in medical school. Holding onto that fundamental human value appears to be the greatest ongoing challenge every medical student faces during their rigorous journey towards becoming the doctors of tomorrow.

To drive innovation and manage change, health systems call on design thinking

To drive innovation and manage change, health systems call on design thinking | Empathy and HealthCare | Scoop.it

Current health system practices are not sufficient to address growing rates of obesity and diabetes, health and economic disparities and cost control. "A Design Thinking Framework for Healthcare Management and Innovation" argues that addressing these complex challenges will require leaders that can think, and act, more like designers...

 

The authors describe and offer tools for three key elements of a design thinking framework which include empathy, radical collaboration and rapid prototyping.

 

"By starting with empathy for our patients, families, employees, and communities, design thinking allows innovation to be driven by 'user' experiences and needs rather than top-down expertise, which is often the case," Roberts says.

In the war on illness, the real victim is empathy 

In the war on illness, the real victim is empathy  | Empathy and HealthCare | Scoop.it

What’s wrong with doctors today? I’m a doctor; I can tell you. Doctors and patients exist in two distinct worlds: the world of the healthy and the world of the sick. The only language that connects these two worlds is kindness and compassion—this is how doctors and patients connect. If you are fluent in this language, you can traverse the divide.

Several studies have shown a sharp decline in empathy by the time students finish medical school. The compassion continues to drop during residency and fellowship, until finally, he or she is a physician with patients depending on them.

The slow but ensured death of empathy in medical education is not an accident.

Addiction, Empathy, and Opioid Alternatives

Addiction, Empathy, and Opioid Alternatives | Empathy and HealthCare | Scoop.it

What gets lost here is the desperation, shame, and self-loathing that accompany drug addiction. Medical doctors must not lose sight of the desperate person behind the behaviors, which can be extremely off-putting and lead to feelings of disgust, helplessness, and even contempt for the drug seeker.

 

Empathy is crucial. Training programs are available and must be prioritized by medical institutions to address this culture-made crisis.

 

When medical professionals aren't equipped with the tools and skills to meet the desperate person behind the wall of addiction, conversations are abruptly ended, and relationships are severed, often before the problem is named and a dedicated team is mobilized to help the individual.

 

True empathy does not mean continuing to write prescriptions. Empathy means asking questions and humanizing the patient, which can result in finding hope for a drug-free future by showing an alternative pathway to recovery....

 

In Massachusetts, the crisis has reached fever pitch. Last year, Governor Charlie Baker convened a task force to make recommendations on the crisis—and one of those must be empathy training for physicians dealing with drug-addicted patients.

Physician Healthcare: Thoughts on Empathy Under the Northern Lights : AAFP Leader Voices

Physician Healthcare: Thoughts on Empathy Under the Northern Lights : AAFP Leader Voices | Empathy and HealthCare | Scoop.it

I use empathy as a diagnostic tool. My mind is geared to understand and mirror the emotions of others. Although I use logic and evidence-based medicine, I cannot deny that a large part of my assessment in the exam room is based on my reaction to how the patient feels.

 

Our brains are uniquely wired for precisely this process and the trillions of neural connections along with experience trigger patterns of diagnosis. The way a patient moves onto the exam table, the small facial expressions, eye contact, skin color and the way the heart beats mean as much to me as do the history and lab work. I use all of this information to answer the fundamental question: Is this patient sick or not?

Doctor's empathy boosts patient satisfaction

Doctor's empathy boosts patient satisfaction | Empathy and HealthCare | Scoop.it

Empathetic doctors seem to understand what their patient is going through, which contributes to patient satisfaction. 

 

Patients do better and are more satisfied with their care if they believe their doctor is empathetic, a new study suggests.

Researchers asked 112 patients, average age 51, to rate their dealings with their hand surgeon.  The results showed that doctor empathy accounted for 65 percent of patient satisfaction.

Patient satisfaction wasn't influenced by wait time for an appointment or wait time in the office, time spent with the surgeon, resident/fellow involvement, whether or not patients were seeking a second opinion, patients' health knowledge or type of treatment.

"It was devastating, and it transformed my interest in communication theory to one of urgent practical importance. Since that time, my motivation and commitment to improving communication between physicians and patients have been deeply personal as well as scholarly."

Community and powerful connections are the cures.

 

3. Listening is A Most Powerful Medical Tool

What does it mean to really listen? This was a theme which rose up from patients and caregivers alike.

 

Listening means understanding not only the disease or the symptoms of your patients, but understanding where they are that day. Receiving a diagnosis of a chronic condition or challenging disease can be overwhelming one day and “life as the new normal” the next.

 

Listening means understanding the challenges of getting to an appointment – scheduling, parking, navigating through a medical campus – create anxiety for a patient in an already stressful situation. Listening means removing the barriers between doctor and patient.

 

Listening means partnership.

What can physicians do to increase empathy about the health of populations?

What can physicians do to increase empathy about the health of populations? | Empathy and HealthCare | Scoop.it
As physicians, we are charged with extending empathy to our patients. In addition to a professional responsibility, empathy is also a mechanism for improving patient care and professional satisfaction.

 

It has been associated with better patient satisfaction, clinical outcomes, fewer medical errors and lawsuits, as well as provider happiness. However, while physicians can be expected to pursue the ideal of empathy towards individual patients, that of empathizing with populations is more challenging. As the old saying goes, a single death is a tragedy, a million deaths are a statistic.

Building relationships is the 'silver bullet' to tackle health inequalities | GPonline | Empathy and HealthCare | Scoop.it

Developing empathy with patients will pave the way to better self-management and health outcomes in patients from poor socio-economic backgrounds, Professor Graham Watt, a professor of general practice and primary care at Glasgow University, told the Londonwide LMCs conference this week.

Studies suggest that patients in more deprived communities tend to show less interest in shared decision making and are more likely to see doctors as less empathetic.

‘Compassion and trust’ is essential to treating these patients and helping them avoid emergency care further down the line, Professor Watt said.

Patient Experience, Empathy Innovation Summit - Empathy Amplified Award

Patient Experience, Empathy Innovation Summit - Empathy Amplified Award | Empathy and HealthCare | Scoop.it
Patient care is more than just healing — it’s building a connection that encompasses mind, body and soul. If you could stand in someone else’s shoes . . . hear what they hear. See what they see. Feel what they feel. Would you treat them differently?

Empathy is the ability to imagine oneself in another’s place and to communicate that understanding back to. The Empathy Amplified Award is an annual award created to recognize those that embody empathy and relationship centered care beyond what is expected in their role.

 

By delivering care with our hearts and minds, the empathy we convey to our patients, families, and to each other, creates a culture that embraces the human experience…the very core of healthcare.
 

Objectives:

  • Recognize a caregiver (healthcare professional, frontline staff, social workers, teams, etc.) who consistently demonstrates an exceptional ability to communicate empathy
  • Celebrate those who innovate in their role to deliver empathy consistently

Empathetic doctors: It is never just in your mind (and exposing Descartes' error)   | Empathy and HealthCare | Scoop.it

Empathetic doctors who communicate well can improve patient outcomes as much as some blockbuster drugs. A common response to this statement is: “Maybe being nice improves someone’s psychology, but it can’t improve biomechanical problems”.

In fact dozens of studies show that patients’ expectations (for example after being given a placebo, or a positive suggestion such as “this pill is really going to make you better”) can improve both symptoms and biological causes of pain, anxiety,  Parkinson’s Disease, and many other conditions.

But the good news is that we can learn to cultivate self-compassion. Which is vital. Self-compassion helps us to meet life’s challenges in a supportive way, said Amy Finlay-Jones, Ph.D, a clinical psychologist, compassion teacher, and researcher who specializes in self-compassion. In fact, according to research, self-compassion has a measurable effect on our mental health and well-being, she said. 

Self-compassion is “the intentional cultivation of a relationship with oneself that is respectful, kind and compassionate,” said Celedra Gildea, Ph.D, a psychotherapist in Portland, Ore., who leads Mindful Self-Compassion, Compassion Cultivation Training and Mindfulness groups. Below are six ways you can start cultivating self-compassion, even if you’ve been berating yourself for years.

In the case of medicine, it’s a disservice not to offer courses that focus on empathy, communication and relationships, according to Emiliana Simon-Thomas, science director at the Greater Good Science Center.

 

“Imagine telling someone they were going to compete in the Olympics as a runner, but rely on life experience to prepare them,” Simon-Thomas says. “Here we are putting [new doctors] in a position where they are confronted with pain and suffering all day. To not prepare them for that is unfair.”

 

Educators in the medical field agree, and more and more medical schools have started to incorporate the doctor-patient relationship into the curriculum.

 

Emory University Medical Center, Duke University Medical Center and Stony Brook University School of Medicine offer training in “medical humanism.

 

Oncotalk, a course required of Duke’s oncology fellows, and Empathetics, a series of online courses for physicians, are part of a larger effort to teach doctors clinical empathy and improve the relationship between patients and their doctors.

A compassionate physician is the most important element of a positive patient experience, according to a recent study.

Researchers found that patients had better health outcomes and were more pleased with their care when they felt their doctor was empathetic.

According to the study, published in the Journal of Hand Surgery, surveyed patients said that empathy from their hand surgeon amounted to nearly two-thirds of their overall satisfaction.

Medical skills are significant in hand and orthopedic surgery, but “this study shows that physician empathy is the best opportunity to improve the patient experience,” said principal investigator Dr. David Ring, an orthopedic surgeon at Massachusetts General Hospital, in a news release.

Physician empathy associated with decreased patient anxiety

Physician empathy associated with decreased patient anxiety | Empathy and HealthCare | Scoop.it

When hospitalists responded to patients with empathy, those patients experienced decreases in anxiety and rated their experiences with the hospitalist more positively, according to findings presented at the Society of Hospital Medicine Annual Meeting.

 

Rachel Weiss, MD, UCSF Medical Center, San Francisco, and colleagues also found that empathic responses were not associated with length of the patient encounter.

"Experts identify empathic responses to patient expressions of negative emotion — such as anxiety, sadness, and anger — as a key component of patient-centered communication, yet evidence on the impact of empathy on patient-reported outcomes in the hospital is limited," Weiss and colleagues reported in their abstract.

The researchers recorded the audio of 76 patient encounters with 27 physicians at two academic hospitals and surveyed patients about the encounters both before and after. They categorized hospitalist responses as empathic, neutral or nonempathic and evaluated patient anxiety before and after the encounter using the 60-point State Anxiety Scale. They also measured encounter length and patient ratings of the hospitalist and the encounter.
