Compassion Fatigue Awareness

Compassion Fatigue Awareness

Monday 04 March 2019, 6pm - 7:30pm


Coming up in March is our talk on Compassion Fatigue – an important issue for all healthcare professionals! Caring for others in distress takes an emotional toll on healthcare providers, which can lead to reduced capacity for empathy for future patients. Join us in learning the signs and symptoms of compassion fatigue and how to actively and effectively manage it.

When: Monday, March 4th, 18:00 – 19:30
Where: Falmer Campus, Checkland Building, Room C218
