Schwartz Rounds are a multidisciplinary forum designed for staff to come together once a month to discuss and reflect on the emotional and social challenges associated with working in healthcare, this includes both clinical and non-clinical staff members.
Rounds can help staff feel more supported in their jobs, allowing them the time and space to reflect on their roles.
The underlying premise for Schwartz Rounds are that the compassion shown by staff can make all the difference to a patient’s experience of care, but that in order to provide compassionate care staff must, in turn, feel supported in their work
Evidence by The King’s Fund has shown that staff who attend Rounds feel less stressed and isolated, with increased insight and appreciation for each other’s roles. Rounds also help to reduce hierarchies between staff and to focus attention on the relational aspects of care
A timetable of upcoming Schwartz Rounds being held at Keyll Darree can be found on the right side panel, in addition to information on becoming a Schwartz Round Facilitator.
