Presented by Sumitra Price, RVT, CVPM, CCFP (Certified Compassion Fatigue Professional)
Compassion Fatigue has always been an issue in the medical field. Still, it has only recently been discussed openly due to the increase in veterinary professional suicide rates and the effects of life‑changing events like the pandemic.
Everyone has experienced compassion fatigue on some level. This presentation will help you understand how to recognize the physiological and psychological effects of compassion fatigue, where it derives from, and provide options on how to regulate it consciously — which is vital to a person’s ability to maintain their mental health in the veterinary field.
