Rutgers School of Nursing

Doctors, nurses, social workers, and chaplains working with patients at end-of-life often feel uniquely called to this compelling healthcare practice. Yet they are also more likely to suffer from compassion fatigue and burnout than practitioners in other specialties.

Presented by an experienced multidisciplinary panel of speakers, this educational opportunity equips professionals working in end-of-life care to combat compassion fatigue. This conference will:

  • Define possible causes of compassion fatigue
  • Offer an array of simple yet effective self-care techniques practitioners may utilize in the field
  • Offer a framework to develop strategies for strengthening resilience in caregiving.

Participants will gain critical self-knowledge so they may continue to find joy and satisfaction in serving patients with chronic or life-limiting illness.
