Description

Problem: Today, it is said that compassionate care is lacking among critical care nurses. It is important to increase compassionate care delivery in the critical care setting to improve nurses work-experience and patient outcomes.

Aims: This project is aiming to determine the effect of compassionate care education on critical care nurses’ ability to provide compassionate care.

Methods: This project included a pre-survey, education, and post-survey. The author developed surveys focused on compassionate care in the clinical setting. Compassionate care education was provided via pamphlet. The-post-survey was distributed two weeks after education. The convenience sample included nurses on a cardiac critical care unit

Pertinent Findings: An increase in knowledge about compassionate care is expected, resulting in an increased delivery of compassionate care.

Conclusion: Critical care nurses should consider the importance of compassionate care delivery. Critical care nurses will benefit through continued education on and acknowledgment of compassionate care. By identifying signs of compassion fatigue and selecting coping mechanisms, compassionate care can be increased and maintained.
