The specific objectives of the project are:

  • To construct, pilot and implement a self assessment tool, “compassion measuring tool” (CMT);

  • To design new training and work based learning model, for the development of compassion skills of nurses and health care professionals;

  • To develop an intervention which will promote the learning, practice and support of compassion-in-practice;

  • To evaluate the effectiveness of the intervention on service providers and users;

  • To establish a network of people working on ‘compassion’ projects for knowledge share and co-creation of knowledge.
