Empathy in Healthcare: 3rd Biennial Colloquium (Virtual)

11th/12th November 2021

Empathic care is an invaluable tool in the modern practitioner’s arsenal; it is essential in improving outcomes for patients, in reducing burnout for healthcare practitioners and boosting care satisfaction for both parties. Barriers to this, however, can range from revolutionary technology to lack of diversity. This 3rd biennial meeting with its related colloquium themes will address different ways we can overcome these barriers to empathic care. Led by internationally renowned speakers, the colloquium will give its attendees the opportunity to learn about the cutting-edge research related to empathy and to interact both with like-minded people and international leaders in the field.

The virtual event will be interactive with a combination of keynote lectures, panels, and workshops. Between lectures and panels, the organizers will lead a series of exercises to promote self-empathy.

The timings will be Australasia, Europe, and US friendly.

Themes and Keynote Speakers

1.     Empathy and special abilities: Dinesh Palipana. People with special abilities offer a unique perspective through which to view the healthcare system, and how to improve its empathy. This keynote will give the audience an inspiring perspective on this important area.

 

2.     Introducing empathy into medical school curricula: Rachel Winter. Empathy has become a core part of the Leicester Medical School Curriculum, and these two speakers will discuss how they overcame barriers to achieve this.

3.     Self-Empathy, Technology and Ageing: Muir Gray

Technology, ranging from care- and chat-bots to video consultations, are making inroads into medical care. How can these tools improve self-empathy?

 

4.     ‘Smiling on the telephone’: digital interventions to promote empathy: Felicity Bishop. The COVID-19 pandemic and its aftermath have changed the way patients communicate with their healthcare practitioners, with telephone and video replacing face-to-face consultations. What are the barriers and facilitators to tele- and video-empathy? Felicity Bishop will review the latest evidence in this area and how her research group is using it to improve empathy in healthcare.

 

5.     Integrative empathy; five empathy skills in cancer care in South Africa: Lidewij Niezink and Katherine Train

While empathy is often thought of in terms of doctor-patient encounters, these speakers will show how empathy practice for peer support and learning is just as important.

About the Keynote Speakers & Self-Empathy Leaders

Dr. Dinesh Palipana. Dinesh was the first quadriplegic medical intern in Queensland, and the second person to graduate medical school with quadriplegia in Australia. Dinesh earned a Bachelor of Laws (LLB), prior to completing his Doctor of Medicine (MD) at the Griffith University. He has completed an Advanced Clerkship in Radiology at the Harvard University. Halfway through medical school, he was involved in a catastrophic motor vehicle accident that caused a cervical spinal cord injury. As a result of his injury and experiences, Dinesh has been an advocate for disability. He is a founding member of Doctors with Disabilities Australia. Dinesh is currently a doctor at the Gold Coast University Hospital. He is a senior lecturer at the Griffith University and adjunct research fellow at the Menzies Health Institute of Queensland. He has research interests in spinal cord injury, particularly with novel rehabilitation techniques. Dinesh is the Gold Coast University Hospital’s representative in the Australian Medical Association Queensland’s Council of Doctors in Training. He is a member of the scientific advisory committee of the Perry Cross Spinal Research Foundation, disability advisory council at Griffith University, and the Ambassador Council at the Hopkins Centre. He is an ambassador for Physical Disability Australia. He is a doctor for the Gold Coast Titans physical disability rugby team. Dinesh was the Gold Coast Hospital and Health Service’s Junior Doctor of the Year in 2018. He was awarded the Medal of the Order of Australia in 2019. He was the third Australian to be awarded a Henry Viscardi Achievement Award. He was the 2021 Queensland Australian of the Year.

Sir Muir Gray. ​Muir Gray began the first phase of his professional career in 1971 focused on disease prevention, for example on helping people stop smoking. He also developed a local, then national programme of work to promote  health in old age, at a time before the implications of population ageing had been recognised. Based on work in Oxford he developed a number of national initiatives, particularly designed to prevent hospital admission and facilitate hospital discharge, including preventing hypothermia, publishing a Fabian Society  report on the relationship between housing and poverty and the excess winter death, that took place in the United Kingdom. He was the Secretary of ASH Action on Smoking and Health. Then he developed all the screening programmes in the NHS, for pregnant women, children, adults and older people for example offering man aged sixty five screening for abdominal aortic aneurysm and , for both men and women, screening for colorectal cancer. He also developed services to bring knowledge to patients and professionals.  Working on the principle that the delivery of clean clear knowledge was analogous to the provision of clean clear water he saw the  organisation and delivery of knowledge as a public health service, for example developing NHS Choices www.nhs.uk, which now has over 40 million visits a month, and setting up the Centre for Evidence Based Medicine in Oxford. During this period he was appointed as the Chief Knowledge Officer of the NHS and was awarded both a CBE and later a Knighthood for services for the NHS. He is a Visiting Professor in Knowledge Management in the Nuffield Department of Surgery, and a Professor in the Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences where he leads work on Evidence Based Medicine and Value He set up charities to promote urban walking and an Oxford based Centre for Sustainable Healthcare. He set up the Centre for Sustainable Healthcare and Better Value Healthcare  and has published a series of  How To Handbooks for example, How `to Get Better Value Healthcare, How To Build Healthcare Systems andHow To Create the Right Healthcare Culture.His hobby is ageing and how to cope with it. Here is what he says about his health "I am a fairly typical healthy 76 year old, I had an attack of polio when i was seven which left my right leg a little thinner than my left, but I could still play sport, then at 12 I developed acute kidney failure but in the days before dialysis was lucky enough to recover. also i grew up in a filthy city, Glasgow before the Clean Air Act, and my parents smoked. This will be typical of many people who are 70 plus today.  Then about seven years ago I had heart attack, although at 'low risk' but made a very good recovery, thanks to a stent in one of my arteries. To stay healthy i try to walk briskly using the www.nhs.uk/oneyou app, eat a mediterranean diet, minimise stress and sleep eight hours a night, and every year i try to take more action against ageing for example by increasing the time spent stretching. since then i have had two adventures. i tripped running for a train , which was late and broke 7 ribs, 5 of them in two places, then a year later i developed severe sciatica and am still a little weak in my left leg.

Dr Rachel Winter is an Academic Clinical Lecturer in medical education and a psychiatrist in training. She leads on the Medicine with Foundation Year at Leicester Medical School, a 'year 0' for medical students from less advantaged backgrounds which seeks to increase diversity and level the playing field in accessing careers in medicine. She is currently undertaking a PhD seeking to understand how empathy can be nurtured in healthcare students and practitioners with the aim of creating a national curriculum framework in clinical empathy for undergraduate medical education.

Dr. Felicity Bishop is a health psychologist leading an interdisciplinary programme of mixed methods research around complementary therapies and placebo effects in health care within Psychology at the University of Southampton. She teaches a wide range of courses including Psychology and the Delivery of Health Care, Biopsychosocial Aspects of Healthcare, and  Psychosocial Aspects of Illness & Disability. She is the associate editor of the British Journal of Health Psychology, and a member of the Board of Directors of the International Society of Traditional, Complementary & Integrative Medicine Researchers. Based upon an intensive research practice in health care, Dr. Bishop’s belief in the power and genuinity of placebo effects helps her pursue the valuable question whether these effects can be harnessed ethically to improve healthcare.

Dr Lidewij Niezink has been working on the development of empathy theory and practice for nearly 20 years. She writes, consults, trains and speaks on empathy for scientific, professional and lay publics. Dr Niezink teaches Applied Psychology at the Hanze University of Applied Sciences in the Netherlands and works as an independent empathy scholar focusing on integrating practice based experiential methods with fundamental and applied research. She holds a PhD from the University of Groningen, The Netherlands and publishes in national and international (academic) books and journals. Dr Niezink was a fellow of the Mind and Life Summer Research Institute in 2007 and was elected a Fellow of the International Center for Compassionate Organizations (ICCO) in 2013 before joining the International Center as the Director of Research. Her work now focuses on empathy praxis. Together with Dr Katherine Train she founded Empathic Intervision (www.empathicintervision.com).

Dr Katherine Train is an independent practitioner and researcher. Since 2005 she has been researching, developing learning material and presenting training on professional development, wellbeing, presence, empathy, compassion fatigue and burnout in various sectors. When training as a pharmacist, she realised she had technical expertise, but lacked skills to adequately understand her patients. This led to a directed exploration of these capacities, as a coaching training and as research towards a masters and PhD degree. Her research interest has been in the application of empathy in organizations in South Africa whilst the country is emerging as a new democracy with its cultural and resource diversity and history of social upheaval. She holds a PhD from Graduate School of Business, University of Cape Town. Together with Dr Lidewij Niezink she founded Empathic Intervision (www.empathicintervision.com).

Together, Drs Niezink & Train develop evidence-based Integrated Empathy interventions and education for diverse organisations to identify opportunities and co-create solutions to challenges. They are currently writing a book on Integrative Empathy, combining research from science in psychology, philosophy, social neuroscience, the arts and anthropology. They can be reached at info@empathicintervision.com

Mine Özyurt Kılıç is a professor of English Literature with research expertise in Modernist and contemporary British fiction. She is the author of the first book-length study on Maggie Gee’s fiction Maggie Gee: Writing the Condition-of-England Novel (Bloomsbury 2012). She has also published on Virginia Woolf, Doris Lessing, Angela Carter, Pat Barker and Jeanette Winterson.  Her latest article "Notes From a ‘World That Had Forgotten How to Give’: Edna O’Brien’s Stories of Resilience” focuses on the images of failure in effective communication that lead to a process of resilience building (Critical Inquiries Into Irish Studies, vol. 3, no. 1, 2021). As an associate member of Empathy and Writing Research Group at Bath Spa University, she observes the potential of literature, specifically of short fiction, to change perspectives, the first step of any empathy-related process.

India Pinker is a PhD Student in the School of Medicine at the University of St Andrews. She  researches and writes on Clinical Empathy in practice and has a background in Health Care Communication and Health Psychology. As part of her PhD thesis, she investigates and synthesises current theories on clinical empathy to try to streamline the concept to encourage its integration in medical practice. She is currently adapting a novel training tool for Health Care Professionals that promotes clinical empathy, specifically to harness its benefits in the clinical environment.
