Coping with Chronic Illness: Let's Make the Journey Together! (2014)
In this session recording from PHA's Conference presenters will describe how to focus on coping with chronic illness over the long term for caregivers and patients. Caregivers can be family members, friends, or healthcare providers. Long term exposure to the challenges and stress of providing care and/ or living with a chronic illness can lead to physical and emotional symptoms. Caregivers and patients may experience difficulty coping, compassion fatigue, burnout and survivors guilt. Strategies to identify and address these issues will be discussed.
