The Arnold P. Gold Foundation has partnered with Empathetics, Inc. to help bring empathy education to medical and nursing students. Empathetics—founded by Gold-funded researcher Dr. Helen Riess—is a leading empathy and communications training firm that offers web-based CME/CE-accredited courses to medical professionals.
The partnership between the Gold Foundation and Empathetics will enable medical schools and nursing programs across the United States to access research and evidence-based training tools that will equip students and health care professionals with the communication skills necessary to provide compassionate healthcare to patients.
“One of the strategic goals of the Gold Foundation is to support healthcare professionals with high-quality tools that teach and promote collaborative, compassionate care,” said Dr. Richard Levin, President and CEO. “Linking with Dr. Riess at Empathetics and her research-validated training models is an exciting partnership that will bring empathy to the forefront of the healthcare conversation,” Dr. Levin explained.
The courses developed by Empathetics are informative, interactive, and designed with the busy schedules of health professionals in mind. The courses will be an asset to individuals and institutions who want to improve the relationship between patients and their healthcare team.
“The Gold Foundation is shaping future generations of caring healthcare providers,” stated Dr. Riess. “We are honored to be partnered with the Arnold P. Gold Foundation to help promote the mission of the organization to enhance humanism in the healthcare experience.”
