Compassion Fatigue Awareness (0.2 CEUs)
April 7 & 14 • 1-2 p.m.
Healthcare providers by nature are service-driven by a desire to care for their community. This high level of compassion and empathy shown by healthcare, emergency and community service professionals can prove physically, psychically and mentally harmful. Learn the difference between burnout and compassion fatigue. Recognize the signs of compassion fatigue within yourself and your coworkers.
Presenter: Robert Brinker, Westmoreland Social Work adjunct instructor
Course Code: MEDC 0930-R1

Combating Compassion Fatigue with Mindful Resilience (0.2 CEUs)
April 6 & 7 • 10-11 a.m.
The impact of compassion fatigue on healthcare professionals can be overwhelming. It may cause stress-related symptoms and job dissatisfaction among caregivers and decreased productivity and job turnover within the healthcare system. By becoming aware of the warning signs of compassion fatigue and creating a plan to prevent it, healthcare professionals can continue to positively impact their lives and the lives of the patients and families they encounter.
Presenter: Sue Snyder, RN, MSN, Westmoreland Nursing program director
Course Code: MEDC 0931-R1
