Healthcare providers are particularly vulnerable to occupational stressors secondary to a variety of work-related issues. Contributing factors include, but are not limited to: a demand for increased clinical productivity, staffing shortages, providing care for clients and patients with complex medical and/or social concerns, and conflict with healthcare team members. Chronic exposure to these situations often leads to severe stress which can result in burnout and compassion fatigue of healthcare providers.
It is important that healthcare providers take the time to engage in self-care at the workplace to reduce the impact of occupational stress.
Aromatherapy, through the use of essential oils, has been shown to mitigate occupational stress with some healthcare providers, contributing positively to feelings of well-being.
