How to prevent burnout in healthcare and why are healthcare professionals so stressed out??? Burnout syndrome and compassion fatigue are known to be highly prevalent in healthcare professionals due to factors closely correlated with an individual’s commitment level as well as the challenges associated with day-to-day responsibilities. The resulting burnout causes chronic depletion of coping resources from prolonged exposure to the variety of stressors encountered. Healthcare professionals do not often see their own symptoms; thus, they do not diagnose themselves. Instead, they may forge ahead despite the problems, leading to negative physical and mental outcomes.
This enlightening course will review the factors of stress, burnout, and compassion fatigue for healthcare professionals as well as uncover the specific sources that trigger this insidious process. Effective strategies are shared regarding the management of such sources, as well as suggestions on how to incorporate a resilient mindset into daily thinking. Other physical and neurological frameworks are shared including recommended wellness strategies and simple steps that can change the course of direction. Ultimately, this course should result in a higher quality life for healthcare professionals with greater health outcomes.
