Schwartz Round sessions held in the Education Centre provide an informal lunch followed by a structured one-hour forum where staff from all disciplines come together to discuss the emotional and social aspects of working in healthcare.
The purpose of the Rounds is not to solve problems, but to explore the human and emotional aspects of delivering care and the challenges that staff face from day to day.
The Rounds are based on a patient case that raises specific issues for those caring for the patient. The basic format is that a panel, made up of two or three clinicians involved in the care of the patient, present the case in relation to a particular topic – for example, giving bad news or being caught between the patient and their family. A facilitator then leads the discussion.
