Healthcare professionals often find themselves burdened with the pain and suffering of their patients. Many work long hours, and regularly face stressful situations. This burden does not come without consequence. A vast majority report having experienced low morale or burnout at some point in their careers. And as a result, they may be unable to provide the high quality healthcare service that they would like to.

How can they thrive rather than just survive?
Values in Healthcare: A Spiritual Approach is a unique program designed to help healthcare professionals reconnect with their core values - which were the basis for their choice of entering a healing profession and for their current practices.
