Thank you for your insightful article! Empathy is so important in all aspects of life. In addition to empathy, we think it goes beyond to include values.

We’re working to enhance relationships, empathy, compassion, integrity, respect in healthcare, and created the International Charter for Human Values in Healthcare. The mission of the Charter is to restore the universal core values that should be present in every healthcare interaction to healthcare around the world. These values certainly apply to parenting, leadership and others. Enhancing values will improve how we treat each other and help to sustain our empathy and compassion for ourselves and others.
