Compassion in Healthcare in Time of Unrest:

"Compassion is the wish and the action, when we're able, to reduce or even eliminate pain and suffering." -Barry Kerzin, MD

Compassion is always needed to cultivate trust in our relationships. During times of unrest, it is needed even more. While we may oppose certain policies, we always maintain compassion towards the person.
