Compassion Training Course

CBCT® Compassion Training School of Medicine Faculty/Staff Course

When: Wednesdays, February 1 – March 22 | 5:30– 6:45 p.m.

Where: In Person in James B. Williams Medical Education Building, room 190P

Who: Faculty and staff in the Emory School of Medicine and Emory Healthcare employees

What: Increasing compassion in medicine is a worthwhile pursuit. The Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) reports that compassionate care is associated with improved outcomes and greater patient adherence. Additionally, among providers, extending kindness is associated with reduced burnout and greater well-being. To this end, the Center for Contemplative Science and Compassion-Based Ethics will host a Cognitively-Based Compassion Training (CBCT®) for School of Medicine faculty and staff.

Participants may receive 10 credits of Continuing Medical Education (CME).


Second Victim Phenomenon in Health Care

School of Medicine Professional Development Lecture Series

When: February 8 | Noon-1 p.m.

Where: Zoom. Link provided after registration

Who: Faculty and staff in the School of Medicine


What: First described by Albert Wu in a BMJ 2000 article, the second victim concept advanced our understanding of the significant impact of involvement in an unanticipated adverse patient event or medical error on provider well-being. Subsequent work has identified both systemic and mental health approaches that can substantially mitigate acute and long-term impacts. In this lecture and discussion led by Gordon Tuttle (FSAP) topics will include features, prevalence and natural history of the second victim phenomenon, stages of recovery, practical guidance for self-care and/or providing support to colleagues and resources.
