The Power of Empathy

Are you nursing with your head or your heart? The delivery of task and protocol-oriented care can often leave us losing sight of our core care intentions. In this talk, Geoffrey Ahern will prompt you to re-examine the power of empathy and connecting with patients and their personal stories.
