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?
CEO Toby Cosgrove, MD, shared this video, titled "Empathy," with the Cleveland Clinic staff during his 2012 State of the Clinic address on Feb. 27, 2013.

This video reminds me of why I chose to major in healthcare administration, one of my Professors showed this video on the first and last day of the semester and each time I watch it it bring tears to my eyes
On my Journey to become a Respiratory Therapist, I came across this video during my Orientation at my new Job. All that could come in mind after watching it was “ THIS IS POWERFUL”.
Since then I got a sense of Care as a Clinician.
I watched this video a couple months ago when I started my new nursing job in a doctor's office. They showed it to us during orientation. I need to watch this every couple of months just like the med student said just to stay compassionate and humble. It really hits home. Everybody has an issue whether good or bad daily. I'm thankful to God that I have a relationship with Jesus my Savior.
Wow, crazy how things come full circle. I had seen this video when I was in nursing school and really liked it. I was told by a friend to check out Cleveland Clinic and apply for a job as an RN and stumbled back across this video.
If confinement and most long term care would be cared for from the home front, there would be less anxiety. @Choice Care is working towards ensuring this happens. How would you like it for your doctor to come to your home? Fully equipped to serve you?
No one's gonna see this but I just want to share it...when I was 4 years old,I had blood cancer and I was admitted in the hospital for 3 years in a whole other country.but some people doesn't understand what I've been through...whenever they hear about my cancer they make fun of it...I don't want to be treated differently but I just want them to know my feelings of what I've been through.people tells me to forget about this but 3years is a long time.how can I forget my life's 3 years.no one ever understands other people's life's.they only thinks about their lives and their problems

I never had the comfort of staff comforting me and my sister when we received the news our mother was terminal. Other than two people in the west palm beach office. The clinic needs to listen to their patients more. Who's publishing this is my late mother that's who the email is in I'm her daughter writing the comment.
Empathy is very important. Medicine is an State of the art, science, skill, passion to continue despite difficulties. Because you Love medicine per se and you learn most of the time from your patient not only from the book. In order for you to Connect with your patient you must have empathy, a passion to serve.. Medicine or any profession is a calling to serve..
I'd probably shouldn't tell people I know what they are thinking about
It deals some out way before they go get their diagnoses
Sometimes to be a physic,
With other gifts too
No one but believes actually believe u till you prove it
THAT DID not go over SOO well
As a patient with serious health issues...not once but twice I wish my nurses and their co-workers would see this video at least once a month... THEY SURE NEEDED TO!!! This video is what could have made a difference. Thanks Cleveland Clinic 💙
At this point I'm pretty sure you're joking. I've seen plenty of black families (with married couples) together. Black people and white people are different by color, not by morals. Some white men and women leave their families, some black men and women do. Some black men and women stay married most of their lives, some white men and women do. To state all black men impregnate and leave multiple women is a really shitty generalization.
Funny you mention reproduction... When's the last time you saw a married black couple together with their kids as a family unit? All they do is randomly spawn with four baby mamas apiece, a trend more and more whites are foolishly following ever since the civil rights movement. Think about it.
I am a nurse of 28 years. I used to feel like I made a difference and was appreciated. Now....... No one wants nor understands a person who is an empath. Institutions and co-workers just "want the job done".
This is so helpful for everyone! It reminds us that someone somewhere is going through something very difficult - so we may be kinder, gentler, and more understanding of everyone around us everyday. Driving in our cars, at the store, at work, or at school; you never know what that person is going through right next to you.
This video is fantastic, I wanted to show this in a group I help facilitate, but some of the members have reading problems... Is there any chance of a version that would have voice overs for the experiences? If not, I may try to make my own and sync it up. This video is powerful and I think can be used as an excellent learning tool in so many situations.
I teach empathetic listening throughout the St. Louis community. This video reflects the core principles of our class and it's not about our words. It's about our HEART and desire to connect with those around us in a meaningful and purposeful way. People want to know they matter and this video is a beautiful reminder of the power of human connection felt through empathy.
One of our project managers shared this link from the Cleveland Clinic in
regards to empathy. As we are working around patients, this video gives us a perspective on what people may have going on in their lives as we do construction around
them. Actually, it’s probably a good reminder to us that people at any
project site may have some of the same concerns going on in their lives.
Hope this moves all of us to always consider what someone else may be going
I first saw this video a couple years back in pharmacy school. I've been working as a pharmacist for a little under a year now, and already am starting to get jaded, but thankfully, watching this always helps to put things in perspective. An amazing video, truly.
As a volunteer in a VA Hospice Unit I really appreciated watching this video. It is a stark reminder about those we are trying to give comfort and support to. It was introduced to us by the VA Chaplain and I highly recommend it to anyone who volunteers in any level of medical care. Actually I recommend it to everyone.
The class of drugs that Levitra, Viagra, Stendra, and Cialis belong to are called PDE5 inhibitors. They work by relaxing tight blood vessels, allowing more blood to surge into the penis and cause an erection, says Gregory Bales, M.D., an associate professor of urology at the University of Chicago.
The little pills do the trick for more than two-thirds of men with Viagra protects the heart (ED). They also work for guys who simply need them for a short time to get their “confidence back,” says Michael Eisenberg, M.D., director of male reproductive medicine and surgery at Stanford University.
