Thank you for creating this topic focusing on compassion fatigue, burnout, and self-care. This topic is less discussed and may cause unwanted mental health issues that a medical professional might experience but cannot or does not know how to intervene.

It is an exciting course for rehabilitation professionals, especially those providing services for displaced persons and migrants. A presentation of critical topics gave therapists and other professionals an understanding of the dynamics of migrants' health and how sociocultural context and migration experience impact the health and well-being of displaced persons.
