Empathy – The Emotion that Connects Us


Health professionals need to practice ethics of a high standard in order to provide excellent health care. They must have empathy with their patients. Empathy is a human emotion that connects people positively to one another. No matter what one’s role is as a health professional eg a nurse, a physician, a physiotherapist or a pharmacist, each health practitioner must show empathy in caring for a patient. An NZHPA mantra could be “Every health professional needs empathy!” You’re invited to click on the link as it portrays this message in a beautiful way. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cDDWvj_q-o8
