Circle of Care is a framework that helps us to think about, practice and demonstrate high quality compassionate care.
Watch the animation above to discover more.
Circle of Care re-envisions compassionate healthcare by describing a multi-directional flow of care between healthcare professionals and their colleagues, patients and carers. The model also positions ‘self-care’ – the way healthcare professionals care for themselves – as fundamental to achieving effective healthcare.
At the centre of the Circle of Care is a skills compass which will help navigate the obstacles getting in the way of the flow of care. Develop your skills on this compass by exploring our training and courses. The Circle of Care framework was co-created by Performing Medicine and Guy’s and St. Thomas’ Trust.
