Empathy: The Human Connection to Patient Care – YouTube.

This is quite a nice short film, which doesn’t tell you much about empathy, but does emphasise how everyone (including staff) for at home, in hospital or hospice or out and about has wider life concerns as well as their reason fr being involved in caring – and the concerns are not necessarily immediate or directly connected to their role – the young doctor who is seven years free from cancer, for example. Watch the young woman and her mother (?) hugging as they’ve just signed a do not resuscitate decision.
