  • The emancipatory theory of compassion, created by Dr Jane Georges, assumes the universality of suffering (physical, psychoemotional, socioeconomic, or biopolitical), and the means by which suffering can be alleviated: compassion. The theory also assumes that nurses can knowingly or unknowingly create environments in which suffering is perpetuated. Through critical review of Georges' work and major caring theories, an operationalized model was developed with which nurses may frame inquiry and practice focused on compassion, the alleviation of suffering through the deconstruction of power relations, and the promotion of health equity, social justice, and human rights.
