Abstract:

Healthcare professionals, particularly those in the lactation field, are known for providing care that is emotionally, physically, and mentally taxing. Providing care as lactation professionals during a pandemic has driven many to experience compassion fatigue. This phenomenon impacts one’s personal health in a myriad of ways and also has a significant impact on how one provides empathetic care to families. The current communication model for providing empathetic care in lactation is steeped in the patriarchal model, which actually suppresses empathy. This presentation will help health care providers identify signs of compassion fatigue and provide tools for self-assessment. Additionally, attendees will learn how to apply a natural empathetic model to their lactation/ IBCLC practice to protect their personal health and promote a more supportive way to engage with their families.

Learning Objectives:

Objective 1: List signs of compassion fatigue in healthcare/lactation professionals.

Objective 2: Describe the limitations of a patriarchal model in empathic lactation education and clinical care.

Objective 3: Apply empathy in practice in an exhausted post 2020 psychosocial state.
