Compassionomics: the revolutionary scientific evidence that caring makes a difference A 34-year-old man fighting for his life in the Intensive Care Unit is on an artificial respirator for over a month. Could it be that his chance of getting off the respirator is not how much his nurses know, but rather how much they care?
A 75-year-old woman is heroically saved by a major trauma center only to be discharged and fatally struck by a car while walking home from the hospital. Could a lack of compassion from the hospital staff have been a factor in her death?
Compelling new research shows that health care is in the midst of a compassion crisis.
But the pivotal question is this: Does compassion really matter?
In Compassionomics: The Revolutionary Scientific Evidence that Caring Makes a Difference, physician scientists Stephen Trzeciak and Anthony Mazzarelli uncover the eye-opening data that compassion could be a wonder drug for the 21st century.
Now, for the first time ever, a rigorous review of the science - coupled with captivating stories from the front lines of medicine - demonstrates that human connection in health care matters in astonishing ways. Never before has all the evidence been synthesized together in one place.
You will see compelling evidence that:
- Compassion has vast benefits for patients across a wide variety of conditions
- Missed opportunities for compassion can have devastating health effects
- Compassion can help reverse the cost crisis in health care
- Compassion can be an antidote for burnout among health care providers
- 40 seconds of compassion can save a life
After seeing all the evidence, the answer is crystal clear: Compassion matters...in not only meaningful but measurable ways.

The Long-Distance Leader: rules for remarkable remote leadership To make leadership happen today we must rely more on technology and far less on face-to face communication.

The book is built around the authors' 3 O model- Ourselves, Others, and Outcomes. They explain how to cultivate the mindset and attitude needed to lead oneself effectively at a distance; how to engage others when you're not physically present; and what processes and tools to use to make sure dispersed teams achieve the desired outcomes. In some ways the job of a leader has changed less than we think. Leadership is leadership and people are people. But (and it is a pretty big but) how we do it needs to evolve if we want the results and outcomes our organizations demand, leaders need, and their team members deserve.
