Key signs and symptoms of compassion fatigue
Healthcare professionals are under more stress than ever evidenced by increases in demand for better services that are more efficient and thorough, higher costs, reduced staffing, and diminishing resources. Many healthcare workers are putting in longer hours and for less pay. From working twenty-four shifts to simply burning the midnight oil catching up on paperwork, the healthcare industry puts a great deal of stress and fatigue on the average worker and their relationships, including family. Doctors, specialists, nurses, clinical aides and other helping 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 their patients heal. As a result, compassion fatigue and burnout are major hazards of the profession that are far too common.
This seminar 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 discussed during the presentation. Additionally, underlying beliefs about compassion fatigue are explored and other general signs and symptoms of burnout explained.
Strategies for management and prevention are shared, including mindfulness training and behaviors that can help reduce the frequency of fatigue and prevent burnout. Finally, participants will have an opportunity to create their own individualized management and prevention plan.
Why should you attend
With increases in demand for qualitative healthcare and diminishing resources, including the reduction of healthcare dollars and professional staffing, healthcare workers and organizations are more vulnerable than ever to burnout and compassion fatigue. Couple that with a rise in the demands in the personal lives of healthcare professionals, including dual earner households, and busy family life, practitioners need to be aware of fatigue and burnout signs and know how to prevent both in order to serve patients effectively and enjoy a healthy work/life balance. This seminar will help the healthcare professional learn about compassion fatigue, become aware of stressors that lead to this condition, and develop methods for managing and preventing fatigue. Additionally, participants will explore compassion fatigue as compared to burnout. Resources and strategies for preventing burnout are provided as well. Finally, participants will create an individualized compassion fatigue management and burnout prevention plan.
