As practitioners, we design personalised interventions for those with whom we work. . This may mean that we set goals for people based on our own clinical agendas, hoping that we can encourage our clients to take an active role in their own health and wellbeing. This process commonly occurs alongside high administrative demands and tight timelines. Some clinicians may feel they are investing more energy and effort than the individuals with whom they work. A consequence of this may be compassion fatigue and practitioner burnout. I hope that this article will provide you with some strategies to empower you and those you work with, reduce your workload, and assist you to support individuals to thrive rather than survive with their diabetes, while at the same time lower your risk of burnout.
