A team of nursing researchers at La Trobe University are seeking palliative care nurses to participate in an online survey about how work productivity could be influenced by compassion fatigue at clinical settings.

Palliative care nurses frequently provide care for patients with serious illnesses and who are nearing end of life. This imposes a burden on palliative care nurses and makes them at risk for developing compassion fatigue. Although compassion fatigue among palliative care nurses has been considered a major occupational problem, its perceived impact on nurses’ work productivity has not been examined. This research aims to provide initial insight into association of compassion fatigue and work productivity among palliative care nurses.

Registered Nurse (RN) or Enrolled Nurse (EN) employed in any palliative care setting in Australia and involved in the direct care for patients who need palliative care are eligible to participate.

Participants would be asked to complete an electronic questionnaire.  A secure link or QR code will be provided to participants. Completing the questionnaire would take no longer than 20 – 25 minutes. The survey will be anonymous; individuals will not be identifiable by their responses. There is no cost involved in participating and you will not be paid to take part. However, you can choose to opt-in to a random draw for one of 20x$25 gift vouchers.
