Humanitarian work can be extraordinary, fulfilling and purpose-driven; and in many cases may provide a cure for the emotional exhaustion many us feel at home. On the other hand, the stress and demands of providing care in low-resource settings can also cause these exact same problems. We will examine how medical mission work could be the cause OR the cure for burnout and how to prevent compassion fatigue.

Dr. Kristin Long will conduct a breakout on Saturday morning entitled, “Running on Empty: Wellness, Burnout, and Compassion Fatigue in Humanitarian Work”.¬†This session will address the critically important and timely concepts of burnout and compassion fatigue in medical providers.
