How to navigate challenges, compassion and excellence in healthcare


Key takeaways

  1. Healthcare professionals, we give unreservedly our compassion to others, but it's also important we engage in self-care and also give ourselves the compassion to receive compassion for others. A great book 'Overcoming compassion fatigue' was also recommended.

  2. The Holy Spirit is our guide in every situation we face at work and will give us the wisdom to be compassionate to our patients and colleagues - we should be encouraged reminding ourselves of this.

  3. Being able to be open about our expectations and honest about our experiences with other healthcare professionals is so important. It makes us realise we're not alone and humanises the experiences of us and our colleagues.
