Join us on Monday 8/29/22 at 11am PT for this important discussion! Our topic for this call is: Fatigue in all its Flavors - Decision fatigue, Compassion fatigue, & Ethical/Moral Fatigue
Compassion fatigue is a hot topic in the veterinary world, but Dr. Taylor Miller feels it falls short in explaining the career fatigue rampant in our profession. Or rather, it may represent a kind of end-stage fatigue. If this is the case, we need to intervene, recognize, and address all the stages and manifestations of fatigue that precede it. This presentation discusses and differentiates between ethical or moral fatigue, decision fatigue, and compassion fatigue to round out our understanding of these factors that so impact our mental health. By increasing awareness and providing more nuanced metrics for self-monitoring, fatigue can be addressed more effectively and efficiently.
