Team meeting tool: The pressure cooker of veterinary practice

A watched pot never boils, right? Use this team tool to identify risk factors for compassion fatigue.

Compassion fatigue isn't just a buzzword. If members of the team are suffering, it can affect the efficiency, effectiveness and profitability of the practice.

The first step in understanding the issue is self-examination. And with self-examination comes awareness. You know the saying, "a watched pot never boils"? The more awareness your team has about the triggers associated with long-term compassion fatigue, the easier it is to keep from boiling over when things get too hot in the kitchen.

Use this tool in your next team meeting to review the different levels of self-examination the team can perform to gauge where they're at when it comes to compassion fatigue.
