Nurses and Social Workers are faced with difficult situations on a daily basis, despite their own personal stresses. Being able to recognize the contributing factors to compassion fatigue, the symptoms of compassion fatigue and the impact it has on a healthcare providers ability to perform their jobs can help identify potential blocks and stepping stones to authentic wellness. You will learn the negative effects of compassion fatigue on healthcare providers, the stress of caring, and potential consequences of untreated compassion fatigue.
