    Schwartz Center Rounds

    The Hospital of Central Connecticut hosts Schwartz Center Rounds®, unique, multidisciplinary sessions in which hospital staff explore the emotional side of caregiving. A national program with sites across the country, Schwartz Center Rounds are funded by The Schwartz Center for Compassionate Healthcare, a Boston-based non-profit dedicated to advancing compassionate health care.

    In a typical Rounds session, a panel of caregivers presents a patient case that brought up interesting and important psychosocial issues. 

    Topics have included:

    • delivering bad news
    • when religious or spiritual beliefs conflict with medical advice
    • taking care of a colleague
    • and losing a patient.

    Hospital staff then share their own thoughts and feelings related to the day’s topic. Unlike grand rounds, these sessions are not about clinical problem-solving, but rather about exploring and processing the emotions that come up in the daily work of hospital staff.

    A comprehensive study of Schwartz Center Rounds has shown them to help caregivers connect better with patients emotionally; enhance their understanding of the effects of illness on patients and their families; improve communication among caregivers; and decrease feelings of caregiver isolation and stress.
