Compassion Fatigue Initiative

We’re collaborating to promote compassion fatigue resiliency in research animal personnel. 

Animal research personnel are exposed to animal suffering, euthanasia, and social stigma while deeply caring for research animals. As a result, they can experience difficult emotions leading to workplace stress and compassion fatigue.  

The 3Rs Collaborative has created extensive materials to promote compassion fatigue resiliency for our field. This includes a resource hub for individuals and institutional support resources. The institutional resources are being formally evaluated via a 3-year longitudinal survey. 

If you are interested in contributing to the creation and revisions of additional materials, email to get involved.
