Abstract

Caring is a partnership approach, delivered in a dignified and respectful manner. Caring involves seeing someone in his/her context, for which one should be empathetic and compassionate. In the modern society of rising chronic and non communicable disease burden, patients are experts of their sickness experience. Hence technical knowledge alone from health care providers will not suffice, as patients foresee empathetic and compassionate communication. As patient is focus of care in any health care organization to meet the public’s demand for quality nursing care, it is essential that nurses possess caring values.
