March 2014 Newsletter – Focus on Healthcare
Earlier this month, the Charter for Compassion International announced our Global Compassion Council (GCC) and our global members who are helping to guide the work of the Charter. Of our thirty-seven members we have four who are from positions in Healthcare. Here is a brief bio for each:
Learn more of each of the four individuals above and our other GCC members. Dr. Elizabeth Rider (information above) and Dr. Robin Youngson from Auckland, New Zealand have guided our Healthcare sector from its initiation just over a year ago. The GCC members who are associated in healthcare will help to guide our work in compassionate healthcare in the global arena, assist us in reaching out to current and prospective partners, and help build our Compassionate Healthcare Reader by introducing us to new avenues of practice, reflection and research.
When you visit the Healthcare section of the Charter’s website, you’ll see a link to Hearts in Healthcare, the organization begun by Dr. Youngson. The site is a hub where you can find articles, inspiration, resources and campaigns, all designed to help you be part of this movement for change, motivating others to join in and supporting each other as together we all work towards our goal. If you are in healthcare or not, visit the Hearts in Healthcare website and register as a member.
During the last year, the Charter’s Healthcare sector has grown to 79 partners. Below is the list of healthcare partners added since January 1, 2014. Click on the name*, and you will find your way to the partner web page.
If you would like, or know of an organization who would be interested in being a partner to the network, please tell them about the Charter. The process for joining is easy and requires just a few minutes of time, though the rewards of being a member are long term and can be as extensive as you like.
* Please note that there are no links to some partners. Their website partner pages are still in process.
Next Healthcare Partner Call
Our next Healthcare Call will be Tuesday, April 1. This is a general call for all healthcare partners. We will be using Maestro Platform for this call so you will need to register to get the call-in number, and you will receive your own personal identification access number. Please register online as soon as possible since this allows us to tailor the agenda to meet the needs of those involved in the call.
If your city isn’t listed and you aren’t certain as to what time the call would begin in your location, consult the World Clock—Time Converter. Start with Seattle at 6:00 AM and enter your city in the field and click on convert.
Becoming a Charter Partner
We are excited about the increasing number of Healthcare partnerships! Please help us make new connections and spread the word. Being a partner costs nothing monetarily – it is our goal to bring together partners who understand the importance of compassion, kindness, and cooperation within their organizations, and would be open to acknowledging their association with the Charter.
Each partner receives a page on our website which is linked back to their own site. We also have partner sector newsletters, maintain a Partner Facebook page, and have bi-monthly partner calls. A significant number of collaborations have started among our partner organizations across the globe. Our community of members is over 120,000, and we have a robust Facebook presence with visits of close to a half-million each week.
Exercise your Compassion! Join the Compassion Relays!
Make compassion an everyday practice of health and well-being in your life and in your communities.
Anyone, any age, can participate in the Relays, now and year-round. The Relays mobilize each of us to seek, discover, and practice compassion in our daily lives. We share acts of compassion and pass on compassion person-to-person and group-to-group around the world.
Use the Compassion Relays Torch logo to highlight and pass on news about the Relays to friends, family, and colleagues via social media and hand-to-hand.
Remember these two key links for the Compassion Relays!
