We are working to radically improve the way people are cared for and to support the staff who deliver care
Making healthcare more human
Our Sweeney programme uses methodologies including Experience-Based Co-Design and Patient and Family-Centred Care to deliver improvements in care quality.
We provide training and ongoing support for Schwartz Rounds in the UK and Ireland - reducing psychological distress in healthcare workers.
Our programmes are running in over 200 hospitals, hospices and other organisations across the UK and Ireland.
Evidence and Resources
