Summary
What still resonates with you when you're spent? What can a caregiver—or a teacher, a leader, a colleague—offer and do when all else fails, when all that's left is our humanity? In this Medical Center Hour, Tim Cunningham weaves together three stories from disparate sites and desperate situations—the Ebola crisis in West Africa, rural Haiti, and an elite pediatric emergency unit on the Upper East Side of New York City—to inquire into what might matter the most at trying times. A clown, then a nurse, and now the director of the Compassionate Care Initiative and an assistant professor in UVA's School of Nursing, Cunningham shares what he believes matters most when all else is lost—and shows how we all have the capacity to access it. Co-presented with the Compassionate Care Initiative, School of Nursing
