It will also explore how such programs may be initiated in other locations and settings.

I'm Fine (Feelings Inside Not Expressed): Alleviating compassion fatigue through an innovative workshop series for clinicians
Professional quality of life for those in direct patient care is a focus area for many healthcare systems. Minimizing compassion fatigue can prevent burnout. Beads of Courage created the "I'm Fine" (Feelings Inside Not Expressed) workshop series to support clinicians. Each workshop integrates the art of poetry with reflective beads to promote selfcare and to renew the mind, heart and spirit of the professional healthcare provider.
