If compassion fatigue is a concern for you or your practice, get the tools to fix it.

You’ll receive new resources for assessing compassion fatigue, implementing nursing interventions, and measuring outcomes. Speakers will also address compassion fatigue as it relates to acute and chronic illnesses, end-of-life issues, and bereavement.

1. Describe the incidence, risk factors, and presentation of compassion fatigue in oncology nurses and discuss the role of resiliency in combating compassion fatigue.
2. Discuss two strategies for compassion fatigue prevention in the oncology work setting.
3. Discuss research strategies to better explain the development of compassion fatigue.
4. Establish tools that identify and assess compassion fatigue, helping to build resilience.
