Crushing Compassion Fatigue: A Team Based Approach


The F.A.S.T. Slowdown in Veterinary Medicine: Getting Yourself Back on Track

*This is a 2-Night Event


Tuesday, June 9th - Crushing Compassion Fatigue: A Team Based Approach 

 Veterinary professionals suffering from compassion fatigue, moral fatigue or burnout can wind up leaving the profession altogether or constantly changing jobs looking for greener grass. Some even self soothe the pain with alcohol, drugs or other addictions, and others even take their own lives. During this presentation you will learn to recognize compassion fatigue in yourself and others, and more importantly, how to combat it. We will discuss methods for team engagement including implementation of Schwartz Center Rounds. The tips and tools you learn about in this session are immediately implementable, simple and effective. 


Tuesday, June 16th - The F.A.S.T. Slowdown in Veterinary Medicine: Getting Yourself Back on Track 

 If we drive too fast, ultimately something will slow us down, be it a bump or curve, your brakes, or even the police. If we run too fast for too long, our body will slow us down via depletion of muscle glycogen or oxygen uptake.

The Veterinary Industry is on track for a F.A.S.T. slowdown. F.A.S.T. stands for Fear, Anxiety, Stress, and Trauma. Veterinary Professionals are experts at seeing and managing fear, anxiety, stress and trauma in animals; unfortunately, they aren’t experts at seeing them within themselves or their colleagues. Many are so blinded by F.A.S.T. that they can barely see to the end of their day … much less their month or year! They are in white-knuckle survival mode. While in survival mode, you don’t get to enjoy your career, much less other parts of your life. 


F.A.S.T. is a negative feedback loop that creates a “mental vortex” of trauma and stress leading to fears and anxiety, which then leads to poor sleep and recovery, which leads to increased anxiety, which feels even more stressful, which accumulates into more traumas. The cycle continues to repeat and oftentimes takes your sanity with it. If you can slow down now, before it’s forced upon you by F.A.S.T., you will move from survival mode to striving for more out of life and finally into thriving within this industry.
