Abstract:

Physicians, nurses, midwives, birth workers, and lactation consultants are continuously providing care to others, and many of these give more than they receive. Doing so puts them at higher risk for compassion fatigue. There are research-based methods to assess, prevent, treat, and cope with compassion fatigue. This session will discuss compassion fatigue, professional burn-out, secondary trauma stress, and ways to take care of yourself in the process of caring for others.

Learning Objectives:

Objective 1: Session attendees will be able to discuss the differences between professional burn-out and compassion fatigue.
Objective 2:
Objective 3: Attendees will be able to name at least two characteristics of compassion fatigue.
Objective 4: Attendees will provide descriptions of three coping methods for use with compassion fatigue.
