One event on January 28, 2022 at 9:00 am
Staff are constantly asked to prioritize the patient’s need, sometimes resulting in overwhelming feelings of stress, compassion fatigue, and burn-out. In order to fully show up for those they serve, professionals need structural policy supports and practice changes that balance self and collective care. This presentation will explore how we can create and maintain an inclusive work culture where staff are resourced and ready to show up for others. The presenter will be exploring healing justice and trauma stewardship in preventing burn-out, secondary stress, and compassion fatigue.
By attending this course, participants will be able to:
- Define healing justice;
- Identify 2 ways to practice collective care;
- Learn the 3 aspects of burnout and how to mitigate it.
