There have been many reports of uncaring practices in health and social care whereby patients do not receive the care and attention they require when they are at their most vulnerable. We also know that many healthcare organizations manage to sustain caring practices in, what are, challenging times. A range of explanations are suggested regarding what promotes and undermines caring practices. These relate to the attitudes and behavior of individual practitioners, to the culture of organizations and to wider social and cultural contexts. We can learn from practice initiatives and innovations designed to promote caring practices and from research and educational initiatives.
