Description:
Much of the care for older adults can be considered palliative in nature. Much of the care is based on therapeutic relationships that exist between the older adult and the clinician and sometimes includes family members. Quality of life and pain management are important goals of the care. This is palliative caring. Palliative caring for older adults can be intense and clinically satisfying but may be emotionally draining, even distressing. This is compassion fatigue. Palliative care clinicians are at high risk for compassion fatigue. Recognition of and constructive response to compassion fatigue can improve the clinician's ability to continue with and enhance the work of palliative care. Through this revealing discussion of palliative caring and compassion fatigue clinicians will learn how to recognize and manage compassion fatigue in themselves and others in the care environment.
