VITAS Professionals

As a VITAS professional, you experience both compassion satisfaction and compassion fatigue from caring for others.  Research is showing that being compassionate towards your patients increases your well-being and self-care strategies are the central intervention for reducing and preventing compassion fatigue and burnout.  My self-care study showed me that there is a spirit of compassionate care and organic “together” self-care being practiced here at VITAS. Living the Compassionate Life brings true happiness that can't be bought.  This evidence-based assessment measures your compassion satisfaction, compassion fatigue, burnout risk and provides custom feedback from which you can take direct action to improve your self-care and well-being.  Click the below button to begin.

If your compassion does not include yourself, it is incomplete.
