HEARTcare planning for educational workers emerged as a key finding from the Compassion Fatigue, Burnout, and Emotional Labour in Educational Workers research study. This two-year study included two surveys, generating over 4000 unique respondents and over 50 personal interviews with educators and sought to understand the lived experience of Alberta educational workers with compassion fatigue and burnout.
The research study ran from January 2020-July 2021, although work is ongoing to mobilize its findings.
