The Cutting Edge of Medical Technology Content, Community & Collaboration
Healthcare professionals bear witness to human suffering on a routine basis and are constantly reminded that tragedy, pain, and challenge often loom large in the midst of helping patients heal. As a result, compassion fatigue and burnout are major hazards of the profession that are becoming far too common.
This webinar focuses on understanding each of these challenges, their similarities and differences. In addition to defining and comparing these conditions, specific triggers will be explored. Participants will gain awareness of key signs and symptoms of compassion fatigue and burnout, while learning how to manage stressors and their consequences. Specific attention will be given to physical, emotional/mental and behavioral symptoms.
Awareness training is a key component to the training. Underlying beliefs about compassion fatigue are explored and other general signs and symptoms of burnout are explained.
