Burnout and Compassion Fatigue – What Can You Do?

Working as a primary caregiver can often be a very thankless and stressful job. In episode 281, I received a question from a listener who works as a patient safety assistance in a hospital and often finds themselves under increasing amounts of stress, struggling from burnout and compassion fatigue. In this post, I validate these feelings and dive into an array of options to help you recharge and keep a more balanced life.
