Fetzer Advisory Council on Health Professions

We are bold enough to say that we want a healthcare system that is spiritual, even awe-inspiring--a healthcare system that will transform the hearts of those who give, receive, teach, and learn care.  

The Fetzer Advisory Council on Health Professions promotes compassionate care that respects the dignity of those who give and receive care and that is based in relationship-centered care. From caregiver-patient interactions to end-of-life transitions, this council is involved in projects that heighten our understanding of the role that love and forgiveness play in effective, efficient, and sensitive healthcare.

The Fetzer Advisory Council on Health Professions is one of 16 councils seeking to foster a greater awareness of how love and forgiveness are essential to their sector.
