Event 6 July. The insight into your own emotions and the ability to respond to others with empathy are key to emotional intelligence and awareness. These qualities are crucial to the role of volunteers and clinicians in palliative care.

In our recent survey of nurses involved with palliative care volunteers some 89% of respondents agreed that volunteers displayed empathy and emotional awareness.

The Science and Psychology of Flourishing (28 July 2017)
