Research output: Contribution to journalMeeting Abstractpeer-review


Compassion-satisfaction and compassion-fatigue influence nurses’ decision to remain in nursing and may impact patient experience of ICU. It is important to gauge ICU nurses’ levels of compassion-satisfaction or fatigue, as workforce turnover is high and quality patient care is essential.

The aim was to determine the extent and predictive factors of critical care nurses’ level of compassion-satisfaction and fatigue.
