Explore ACHS's innovative new micro-credential Aromatherapy for Caregiver Burden and Professional Burnout, addressing the needs of caregivers and high-risk professionals in healthcare with holistic support strategies.

In the intricate web of healthcare and wellness, there is a crucial yet often overlooked group of individuals: caregivers and high-risk professionals. Caregivers are often the unsung heroes behind the scenes, tirelessly providing care and support to those in need. However, this noble duty can take a toll, leading to high physical and emotional stress. Professional burnout, defined by the World Health Organization as “a syndrome conceptualized as resulting from chronic workplace stress that has not been successfully managed,” can take a similar toll on many individuals. Recognizing these timely issues, ACHS has launched a groundbreaking micro-credential aimed at addressing these challenges head-on: Aromatherapy for Caregiver Burden and Professional Burnout.

Our expert faculty members guide students through key concepts and emerging research that redefine these phenomena, paving the way for innovative support strategies.

Caregivers come from diverse backgrounds and play various roles, ranging from family members to healthcare professionals. By comprehensively examining their needs, participants gain invaluable insights into effectively tailoring support systems.
