ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J. - May 23, 2016 - PRLog -- The Arnold P. Gold Foundation (APGF) has partnered with J3Personica to develop and customize a Humanism Assessment Tool (HAT) for medical and nursing students. J3Personica-founded by Alan Friedman- is committed to advancing the way healthcare prepares people to care for patients. Driven by physician-led research and evidence-based tools, J3P partners with medical schools, graduate medical education organizations, and healthcare institutions in the identification and advancement of both their current and next generation of leaders.

The partnership between the APGF and J3Personica represents an opportunity to transform the Gold Foundation's IE.CARES model of Integrity, Empathy, Compassion, Altruism, Respect, Resilience, Excellence and Service into a tool that can be used by students to increase their self-awareness about attributes necessary for becoming compassionate, humanistic caregivers. As part of the assessment, each student will receive a confidential personal profile as it relates to the IE.CARES attributes and institutions will have at their disposal a resource to support the health professional development activities of their students.

"The Humanism Assessment Tool will advance humanistic skills in the next generation of health professionals and help create communities of caring at the institutional level," explained Dr. Richard Levin, President and CEO of the Arnold P. Gold Foundation. "These are not soft skills - they are essential to providing care that delivers the best health outcomes. We are very happy to partner with J3Personica to create an evidence-based resource that measures the human side of medicine to ensure that students and professionals are prepared to care for patients."

"We are extremely proud of our partnership and collaboration with The Arnold P. Gold Foundation", stated Alan Friedman, CEO of J3Personica. "The APGF's mission and mandate mirrors our organizational goals of creating and increasing self awareness through the use of assessment within the clinical community. By providing a vehicle through the Humanism Assessment Tool, we will be furthering the the ability of clinical students to utilize a data based approach towards exhibiting more humanistic behavior towards patients."

To launch this partnership, APGF and J3Personica will be conducting a pilot study of the Humanism Assessment Tool at select medical and nursing schools in the Fall 2016. We are thrilled to be partnering with these schools who by sharing their and their students' experience with the HAT will be at the forefront of contributing to the development of a tool that will greatly advance the fields of humanism, assessment and education for healthcare professionals

The Arnold P. Gold Foundation (APGF) is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to keeping healthcare human. We aim to create the Gold Standard in healthcare - compassionate, collaborative and scientifically excellent care - to support clinicians throughout their careers, so the humanistic passion that motivates them at the beginning of their education is sustained throughout their practice. We strive to ensure that care and respect always govern the relationship between practitioner and patient.

J3Personica (J3P) is committed to advancing the way healthcare prepares people to care for people. Driven by clinician-led research and evidence-based tools, J3Personica is the partner for medical schools, graduate medical education organizations and healthcare institutions in the identification and advancement of both their current and next generation of leaders, redefining personality for healthcare.
