“At a time when most of the world in one way or another is suffering, it seems relevant to talk about ways to relieve some of that suffering and to help.” Studies have shown that patients value empathy over sympathy, and compassion over empathy. While measures to protect ourselves and understand the spread of COVID-19 and the clinical presentation of the disease are underway, the inconsistency of information across sources brings greater uncertainty for our patients and at times ourselves. 
Dr. Rosenman discusses what compassion is and the importance of compassion as a tool to help us and our patients, feel better mentally and physically. He recommends practicing self-compassion and will step through the practices of self-kindness, common humanity, and mindfulness.
