Kent A Mishler
This study relates to the national nursing shortage and the number of nurses leaving healthcare due to compassion fatigue. The study includes one hundred staff nurses at a medical center in central California in which the risk of compassion fatigue was measured prior to intervention. The intervention included eight hours of workshop and three follow-up sessions in which steps to reduce compassion fatigue were introduced. There were twenty-two participants in the intervention and every participant indicated in the post workshop measurement a significant reduction in compassion fatigue risk. The project report includes data gathered in the research and material used in the workshop.
