February 18, 2020 – Can Compassion Fatigue? – with Lori Butterworth, Jacob’s Heart Children’s Cancer Support Services and Kelly Johnson, Lucille Packard Children’s Hospital


With the high burnout rate in the field of pediatric palliative care, this session will investigate what the literature reveals about burnout and how each of us can build the personal and professional resilience we need to sustain ourselves in such an emotionally and physically demanding field. Using emerging research from nurses who volunteer at a camp for children with cancer, this session will guide us to discover ways to alleviate moral distress. We will examine whether it’s our compassion that fatigues when we are on the brink of burnout, leaving us to ponder the question, “If everyone is burning out, who will care for the children?”
