Explain what you have developed and why this is your approach.
I am designing a project that will uniquely identify compassion fatigue and use preventative measures through awareness. Through this we will be able to achieve compassion SATISFACTION.
Share a summary of the justification you provided as you drafted your plan.
Physicians, nurses, and other various healthcare worker are predisposed to highly stressful environments. Prolonged and intense exposures to traumatic events such as death, suffering, pain, and abuse can lead to compassion fatigue. This further leads to ineffective coping, avoidance, and withdrawal. Overall, this directly influences the quality of patient care and is the biggest contributing factor in the growing nursing shortage. (Zhang et al., 2018)
What has your project entailed, and what are your next steps?
My project consists of a workshop/presentation in which participants will be able to list signs and symptoms of compassion fatigue and provide at least one solution. The goal is to be able to describe the importance of compassion fatigue and incorporate solutions in your day-to-day life as a medical professional.
What did you learn from this experience?
Learned to be flexible even when materials are limited. Resiliency is key when faced with adversity within launching a workshop.
Finally, would you do differently if you were to develop this project again?
I would not change anything. I believe this topic is important to the well-being of nursing care and patient satisfaction. Reducing burnout through compassion fatigue reduction can do that.
