- Hardiness as a Defense Against Compassion Fatigue and BurnoutJournal of Emergency NursingVol. 37Issue 2
- PreviewThe research article, “Compassion Satisfaction, Burnout, and Compassion Fatigue Among Emergency Nurses Compared with Nurses in Other Selected Inpatient Specialties”1 was of particular interest to me as a leader of emergency nurses. The researchers' findings rejected the hypothesis that emergency nurses were more likely to suffer burnout and compassion fatigue than were inpatient nurses. I am responding to the article to offer suggestions from the literature that may serve to combat the problems of burnout and compassion fatigue.
