The Concept and Art of Compassion: A Conversation with Dr. Shane Sinclair

Compassion Research Lab

January 7, 2022

Compassion is a simple but profound concept that lies at the heart of what it means to be human.  

In this interview with Virtual Hospice, Dr. Shane Sinclair, Director of the Compassion Research Lab, discusses why scientists, philosophers and spiritual leaders consider compassion to be the litmus test of what it means to be a true human being. Topics of conversation include whether compassion can be taught, what are the key attributes of a compassionate healthcare provider, why compassion is not a billable service, and why patients living with a life limiting illness often consider compassion a necessity, not simply a luxury, in their experience of healthcare.
