Schwartz Center Rounds

Southcoast Hospitals hosts Schwartz Center Rounds, which are unique, multidisciplinary sessions in which hospital staff explore the emotional side of caregiving.

A national program with sites across the country, Schwartz Center Rounds are funded by the Kenneth B. Schwartz Center, a Boston-based nonprofit dedicated to advancing compassionate health care.

In a typical Schwartz Rounds session, a panel of caregivers presents a patient case that brought up interesting and important psychosocial issues. Topics have included:

  • Delivering bad news.
  • When religious or spiritual beliefs conflict with medical advice.
  • Taking care of a colleague.
  • Losing a patient.

Hospital staff then share their own thoughts and feelings related to the day's topic. Unlike grand rounds, these sessions are not about clinical problem-solving, but rather about exploring and processing the emotions that come up in the daily work of hospital staff.

A comprehensive study of Schwartz Center Rounds has shown them to help caregivers connect better with patients emotionally; enhance their understanding of the effects of illness on patients and their families; improve communication among caregivers and decrease feelings of caregiver isolation and stress.
