Compassion in Healthcare
The stress inherent to the healthcare industry can negatively affect healthcare workers. Stress and pressure can lead to compassion fatigue, increased depression, decreased job satisfaction, disrupted personal relationships, and psychological distress.
Healthcare workers are more likely to suffer from burnout, which ultimately can result in suboptimal patient care and an inability to practice compassionate care and attention. Compassion Cultivation Training provides caregivers with the valuable tools they need to practice mindfulness, mitigate or eliminate errors, and connect with patients – and oneself – in a compassionate way.
In this course, healthcare providers can learn how to:
- Increase kindness and compassion for themselves and others
- Develop higher levels of serenity and resilience
- Calm the mind and direct thoughts more positively
- Sharpen ability to focus and pay attention
- Access a variety of self-care skills and techniques
Resulting benefits include:
- Increased ability to handle stressful work situations
- More meaningful connections with patients and co-workers
- Better ability to engage and collaborate with team members
- Decreased job overwhelm, increased job satisfaction
- Reduced compassion fatigue
Training can be delivered in an 8-week program or customized into shorter workshops for your organization. Please click here to submit a request form for a customized event.
