The Leadership in Compassionate Care programme is a collaborative venture between Edinburgh Napier University and NHS Lothian and is supported by a generous benefactor. The aim of the 3 year project is to ensure that compassionate nursing practice is integral to care within NHS Lothian and within the undergraduate nursing programme at Napier University. An important part of this programme is to disseminate both the learning and outcomes to other organisations.

The programme has 4 key strands which are:

Embedding the principles of Compassionate Care with in the undergraduate curriculum.
Supporting newly qualified nurses during their first year in practice to facilitate the transition from student to competent and compassionate staff nurse.
Establishing NHS Lothian centres of excellence in Compassionate Care – called Beacon Wards.
Supporting development of leadership skills in Compassionate Care in NHS Lothian.
