This continuing education course is a four-part series designed for practicing nurses who work in areas that are considered high risk for compassion fatigue, burnout, and secondary stress syndrome. These areas include, but are not limited to, Emergency Departments, Intensive Care Units, Pediatric Emergency Departments and Intensive Care Units, Oncology, Hospice and Palliative Care. This course will examine how repeated exposure to traumatic events of patients and their families affects the nurses who care for them. The overall goal of this continuing education course is for learners to define their spirituality as the foundation for engaging in self-care strategies that promote resilience when faced with adversity in both their personal and professional lives. Each session focuses on a specific theme related to baseball.
