Compassion fatigue, a rising problem in the medical community
When caring too much can hurt, a dinner event highlighting what to do about it
Phoenix, Arizona: When medical health professionals and caregivers focus on their patients without practicing self-care, destructive behaviors can surface. Exhaustion, isolation, bottled up emotions and even substance abuse top the list of symptoms associated with the secondary traumatic stress disorder now labeled as Compassion Fatigue.
“It’s thinking that created the behavior and it’s thinking that will change the behavior. Compassion fatigue is simply a physical manifestation of symptoms born of repeated behavior and habitual thought,” says Maya Nahra, RD, Founder and CEO of Nuuaria. Compassion fatigue – just like stress – need not be ‘managed,’ rather, can be eliminated with practiced habit change.
Nuuaria is hosting a physician and nurse practitioner dinner at the Arizona Biltmore on Thursday July 19th to address this important topic in a new light, offering new ways to eliminate the symptoms through habit change so health professionals can do what they do best –improve the quality of human lives, without the negative symptoms of compassion fatigue.
