Creating a Culture of Empathy

Empathetics’ online, evidence-based training is proven to raise patient experience scores and reduce clinician burnout and turnover.  Our accredited courses have delivered significant results for hospitals and healthcare systems and are grounded in the E.M.P.A.T.H.Y.® approach.*

Healthcare providers and staff participate in the eLearning programs, and our train-the-trainer programs teach facilitators how to conduct workshops. We recommend a blended learning experience that combines self-paced eLearning and cohort workshops to deepen the impact of your empathy training.

Train-the-trainer programs prepare your facilitators to lead guided discussions and simulations that allow clinical and non-clinical staff to personalize and practice the course concepts. The workshop facilitator training is designed to pair with the e-learning courses. This learning strategy serves as an opportunity to deepen and customize the Empathetics web-based curriculum by allowing participants to apply their learning to actual patient interactions that have challenged their own confidence and empathy.
