Speaker:  Randall Hallett, Gobel Group

Topic:  “Creating a Culture of Gratitude and Clinician Engagement-Part II”

Gratitude Motivates Giving. Giving Promotes Healing. Clinicians are Key.

Gratitude Motivates Giving. When a patient or family gives back, it’s not a financial transaction as most hospital employees would believe; rather, it’s a transformational experience for the patient and family that is inspired by the care and compassion clinicians have provided. As a result, patients and families are grateful. It’s this gratitude that motivates philanthropy.

Giving Promotes Healing. After years of research, Gobel Group has identified clinical studies that demonstrate the relationship between giving and healing, and the consequences to patients when they are denied the opportunity to give back. Giving is a natural extension of the clinical experience. Gobel Group shows clinicians they have a responsibility as healers to be involved in the philanthropic process.

Clinicians are Key. Donors don’t give because of hospitals or even programs. They give to honor of the individuals who were instrumental in their care. Grateful patients represent a significant and untapped potential. By building meaningful partnerships with clinicians, philanthropy offices can maximize their results.
