Abstract This special issue of Nurse Education Today will add to the body of knowledge on compassion in healthcare: how employers can foster it and how educational establishments can develop it through pre-course selection of students, classroom and practice learning, and post-registration courses. In response to the call for papers for a Special Issue on Compassionate Care, the Editors received a number of articles from across the world that investigated and/or explored the evidence around this controversial and complex topic.
