Simon Fox, co-founder and executive director of the Adventures in Caring Foundation, reminds listeners that there is more to healing than good medical care.  Adventures in Caring has been pioneering the human side of health care for 30 years.  They teach the art of compassion to our future healthcare workers.  In addition, they understand that burnout and compassion fatigue are occupational hazards of healthcare and emergency responders.  In response to their need, Adventures in Caring created  a course and DVD called Oxygen for Caregivers–to  help them to care for themselves.
