Compassionate Care Concept

As an essential principle of person-centered care, compassionate care refers to the way nurses relate to others as human beings and involves “noticing another person’s vulnerability, experiencing an emotional reaction to this, and acting in some way with them in a way that is meaningful for people.” Compassionate care is interrelated with other concepts such as caring, empathy, and respect and is also closely associated with patient satisfaction.
