Stress Reduction, Compassion Fatigue Awareness, Burnout Prevention. Healthcare professionals, regardless of specialty and work setting, are under more stress than ever evidenced by increases in demand for quality services that are more efficient and extremely thorough, higher costs, reduced staffing, and diminishing resources. Many healthcare workers are putting in longer hours for less pay.

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.
