Schwartz Center Rounds
The Brookdale Department of Geriatrics and Palliative Medicine began hosting monthly Schwartz Center Rounds in February of 2007. The Schwartz Center Rounds are unique, multidisciplinary sessions in which hospital staff explore the emotional side of care giving. A national program with sites across the country, Schwartz Center Rounds are sponsored by the Kenneth B. Schwartz Center, a Boston-based nonprofit dedicated to advancing compassionate health care. In a typical rounds session, a panel of caregivers briefly presents a patient case that brought up interesting and important psychosocial issues. Hospital staff members in attendance then share their own thoughts and feelings related to the topic.
We welcome your suggestions. If you know of a case that would be appropriate for the Schwartz Center Rounds, e-mail us.
For more information on the rounds, contact Paulette Nordmann.
