About the Event
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. From working extra 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. 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.
The Global Coronavirus Pandemic adds a new dimension of chaos and stress on healthcare systems and their
workers. As a result, stress, compassion fatigue and burnout have quickly become the major hazard of a
profession whose basis was founded on the Hippocratic oath and the conduit of delivering continuity and
compassion to patients.
Purpose: This program is designed to teach industry leaders and front-line healthcare workers to become
aware of compassion fatigue and burnout risks in the workplace, while learning how to manage symptoms,
and prevent fatigue and burnout through applied cognitive, behavioral, and emotional interventions.
Training Content: The training includes an introduction, definition and exploration of terminology, a review
of the causes of compassion fatigue and burnout, symptom identification, research and original theory,
individual and group intervention/prevention strategies, and a summary/conclusion.
The training includes a step wise individualized written “Burnout Prevention/Burn-up Invention Plan” that
participants will work on throughout the program and finish up on their own after the training.
