Dr. Susan B. Hassmiller, the senior adviser for nursing at the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, will share her story of her husband’s final days in the intensive care unit and the importance of enabling clinicians to prioritize the patient and family experience. She will discuss the need both for health systems and individual clinicians to deliver compassionate, high-quality care, as well as to articulate why compassionate care has been shown to improve health outcomes and clinician satisfaction.
