9:00 AM EDT: Compassion Fatigue and Burnout: Understanding the Differences and Managing the Consequences
When developing a nurse-patient therapeutic relationship, a nurse’s proclivity for empathy may put them at risk for compassion fatigue. Cumulative stress related to the work environment can contribute to burnout. Although compassion fatigue and burnout have similarities in etiologies, triggers, and symptoms, they differ in several ways. This session will explore strategies on how to recognize and manage the symptoms of both situations, understand the similarities and differences, and how to mitigate the risks.
Learning Outcomes: After the session, attendees will be able to describe the similarities and differences between compassion fatigue and burnout, and verbalize potential strategies to manage both.
