Understanding Compassion Fatigue Jennifer Reidy
This interdisciplinary workshop is being coordinated by SCI, IICMS, ISCP, PODIATRY and is suitable for all practitioners who work in the Health and Social Care Profession.
Compassion fatigue describes “the overall experience of emotional and physical fatigue that caring professionals experience due to chronic use of empathy when engaging with service users who are suffering in some way” (Newell & MacNeil, 2010). A large part of compassion fatigue is built directly into the fabric of the kind of work caring professionals do.
