Across the Foundation’s priority areas, our grantees are working to improve the health of the public through innovative research and programs. The Foundation awards up to 40 grants on a rotating schedule each year.
Interprofessional Spiritual Rounds
This award will help address the lack of compassion in patient care caused by clinician burnout, empathy decline, and loss of “authentic” self, which begins during professional formation. This problem can be addressed by integrating personal professional formation into the mainstream rounding for clinical medical students as is currently done in Reflection Rounds at George Washington University Institute for Spirituality and Health (GWish) in partnership with the Templeton Foundation. Interprofessional spiritual rounds will be piloted in a network of Macy-supported institutions.
