Simulation Clinic: Complications, Anger, and Burnout

Have you ever been in a situation where your response to the event is much greater than you expected? Or when you feel like you just can’t face the same thing one more time? Both work and personal stressors often impact our response. In this simulation presentation, learn appropriate responses to difficult clinical situations and how to decompress afterward. You’ll start by facing a difficult patient and their family who have experienced post-operative complications and met medical system red tape at every juncture. They are disgruntled, angry, and sick. They need answers, and you are near burn out. How can you provide quality, compassionate care and still take care of yourself?
