While all of our education and health care systems value caring as a core part of our missions, competing interests (financial constraints, productivity, competition for GME) can create challenges in actually practicing care, not only for our patients, but for our learners, our faculty and staff, and our organizations themselves. This session will present a conceptual framework for practices of care and will pose the general question: “How would our programs and systems be different if caring were the central organizing idea, and what feasible changes can we make to bring this about?”
