Summary
Compassion fatigue afflicts nurses working in all caring environments and has become a serious issue in health care institutions worldwide. This is the only book to specifically address this challenge and the related syndrome of burnout in nursing. It presents a unique healing model to identify, treat and, where possible, more satisfying work environment, nurses are encouraged to reconnect with the meaning and purpose of their work. The volume addresses risk factors for, and manifestations of, compassion fatigue, burnout, and other related experiences--such as post-traumatic stress, death overload, collective trauma, and moral distress--and presents strategies to mediate and resolve these issues. The author emphasizes ways in which dissatisfaction negatively influences the quality of patient care and calls for nurses to reinvent their work environments to promote compassion contentment. Case vignettes and exercises will help readers identify and alter patterns of negativity to reaffirm purpose in the professional lives
