Self-care and well-being

September 2014   Comments

I was overjoyed to see this Ask an Expert (June) article and its insightful information. Ours is a helping profession, but nurses tend to care for everyone else but themselves. As Mathieu suggests, if you are experiencing compassion fatigue, trauma or burnout, ask for debriefing and reach out to your employee assistance program for confidential professional help.
