from Society for Academic Emergency Medicine via Medical Xpress
Pediatric emergency medicine physicians are at risk for developing compassion fatigue, burnout, and low compassion satisfaction, but proactive awareness of these phenomena and their predictors may allow providers to better manage the unique challenges and emotional stressors of the pediatric ED to enhance personal well-being and professional performance, according to a newly published study. The authors suggest that while CO, BO, and CS are distinct phenomena, there are degrees of overlap among their predictive factors that may be ripe for intervention.
