The American Nurses Association would like to thank its website visitors who participated in the September 2011 'Have Your Say' online poll. The poll asked respondents if they were suffering from compassion fatigue.
According to the results, 62% of the respondents reported suffering from this kind of fatigue. The results are based on 839online responses.
To participate in the new poll, go to the NursingWorld homepage and answer the new poll question under the section titled "HAVE YOUR SAY" at the bottom of the left margin. Polls are posted on a monthly basis, with results from the previous poll made available on the Nursing Insider and the poll results archives.
"Have Your Say" polls are snapshots taken during a brief period of time that reflect the views of NursingWorld.org users who choose to share their opinions on a variety of issues. The polls are not designed or intended to reflect a statistically valid representation of the population and should not be used as such. Data used to report the results were based on responses submitted between September 1 and September 30, 2011.
