Keywords Empathy; Scale; Reliability; Systematic review; Meta-analysis; Heterogeneity
Core Tip No consensus is available about which tools are more reliable to assess clinical empathy in healthcare students. The present study is the first to assess the reliability of clinical empathy scales with meta-analysis. The most frequently used scale is the Jefferson Scale of Physician Empathy followed by Davis’ Interpersonal Reactivity Index. The results indicate that scales have satisfactory internal consistency but there are a multitude of scales, definitions and empathy components, with the presence of heterogeneity and publication bias. Future research should focus on standardizing scales and creating consensus statements regarding empathy definitions and use of appropriate scales.
