Simon Fox discusses Adventures in Caring

Simon Fox, co-founder and executive director of the Adventures in Caring Foundation, reminds listeners that there is more to healing than good medical care.  Adventures in Caring has been pioneering the human side of health care for 30 years.  They teach the art of compassion to our future healthcare workers.  In addition, they understand that burnout and compassion fatigue are occupational hazards of healthcare and emergency responders.  In response to their need, Adventures in Caring created  a course and DVD called Oxygen for Caregivers–to  help them to care for themselves.

Simon Fox, Executive Director of Adventures in Caring, discusses how he and his wife Karen–the Founder, have developed a program which teaches doctors, nurses, and all those in the medical field to feel and convey heart-felt compassion to patients.  They are well-known for sending trained Raggedy Ann and Andys to interact with patients in need of TLC.  They have also produced a series of DVDs that teach compassion.  www.adventuresincaring.org
