Compassion fatigue refers to the emotional, physical and spiritual exhaustion that helping professionals can experience over the course of their career as a result of exposure to large volumes of complex cases or difficult situations. Compassion fatigue can impact helpers’ personal and professional lives with symptoms such as difficulty concentrating, a reduction in empathy towards others, loss of hope, exhaustion, and irritability.

The NYS Office of Addiction Services And Supports (OASAS) in collaboration with Center on Addiction are hosting several summits to review the fundamentals of person-centered care within the OTP system on an organizational and clinical level.
Are you a provider working within an opioid treatment program who’s interested in learning about the transition to person-centered care? This one-day summit will review the core values of person-centered care in an opioid treatment program setting.
Topics will include:
• The fundamentals of person-centered care
• The differences between organizational and clinical level person-centered care
• The rationale for shifting to a person-centered approach to care
• Discussion of person-centered care as an evidence-based practice
• Integrating person-centered care with the OTP setting
This will be a hands-on training that will allow you to review the fundamentals of person-centered care, as well as exercise that knowledge as you explore clinical and organizational examples of person-centered care within the OTP setting. OASAS is pleased to be partnering with the Center on Addiction to provide this informative one-day session. Agenda The morning session will focus on reviewing and discussing the fundamentals of person-centered care. This will include an overview of person-centered care within the OTP system on an organizational and clinical level. The Afternoon session will include a discussion of clinical examples of person-centered care. This allows providers to consider how person-centered care can be operationalized on multiple levels.
