The pressure on nurses and health care professionals has been constant throughout this pandemic.In tonight's Brief But Spectacular, we hear from Tara Rynders, creator of The Clinic,an arts-based workshop designed to alleviate stress and compassion fatigue that many providers experience.Rynders is a registered nurse in Colorado. It's also part of our ongoing arts and culture series, Canvas.I'm a registered nurse. I was a patient for the first time during this experience of having an ectopic pregnancy that had burst.All these people came rushing into my room and yelling, and it was very chaotic.But I remember my nurse, and she took my hand and she whispered into my ear and she said, I'm here and you're going to be OK.After that moment, I realized, this is important work. So I began researching patient outcomes,and realized that what's stopping our patients from feeling seen and heard and cared for every time is compassion fatigue and nursing burnout.And so I created a performance and workshop series to raise awareness, but also give resources and tools for resiliency.The clinic is an art-based workshop series in immersive theater performance. The intention was to raise awareness around compassion fatigue and nursing burnout.It brought people into the hospital for a whole 'nother reason than to see someone who's sick or to have a baby,but to watch an actual performance take place in the halls of a hospital. You follow a woman throughout the hospital as she eventually loses her husband.
