Compassion Fatigue and Strategies for Success – LEAP Workshop

Hosted by: Office of Continuing Education
From: 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Compassion fatigue is an occupational hazard in the veterinary profession that affects the physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing of the professional. This presentation will focus on developing an awareness of the challenges of compassion fatigue in those working in veterinary medicine, including the challenges of secondary traumatic stress and moral distress. To combat these challenges to wellbeing, we will discuss compassion satisfaction triggers, professional purpose, and healthy coping strategies.

This workshop offers 2 hours of LEAP CE (GVBM-2420) and will be offered live via ZOOM.

This workshop will not be recorded for on-demand viewing.
