Description

Attendees will discover the causes and consequences of burnout and compassion fatigue at the individual level and the organizational level. Strategies to build resilience to counter these effects at the individual and organizational levels will be discussed. Physical therapist educators, researchers, and clinicians are increasingly asked to improve productivity while meeting challenging requirements of the educational and health care systems. Burnout has become “a crisis” as healthcare educators and providers cope with multiple sources of stress. The characteristics of burnout include emotional exhaustion, depersonalization, and low personal accomplishment. In addition, episodes of compassion fatigue—taking on the emotional burden of others—may decrease the practice of self-care and positive health practices by physical therapists. Burnout and compassion fatigue are caused by individual factors, but they can also be caused by a “systems issue.” For example, burnout can occur throughout organizations when leadership decisions are not transparent or when communication is not encouraged. Almost all resilience efforts are directed toward individuals. However, it is equally, if not more important, to address systemic or institutional causes. Learning objectives -Identify the causes and consequences of burnout and compassion fatigue on an individual level -Compare and contrast this with the sources and effects of burnout at the organizational level -Explain strategies for enhancing resilience at the individual and organizational levels to counter the negative effects of burnout and stress Target audience: PT educators, Academic Faculty, Clinical Educators, Clinical Instructors CEU: 0.40 Presenter -Anne Mejia-Downs PT, MPH, PhD An email will be sent confirming your purchase and a link will be sent with instructions to access the recording.
