What is a Schwartz Round? Basically, it’s an hour-long opportunity for staff from across the hospital—both clinical and nonclinical—to get together to discuss the difficult emotional and ethical issues that arise in their day-to-day work. Or put differently, Schwartz Rounds provide an opportunity for staff to discuss the human dimensions of care. Topics include working with a difficult patient or family, medical mistakes, breakdowns in communication, bigotry surrounding obesity, complementary and alternative therapy, spirituality.
