The practice of self-care in nursing continues to be an important issue. Dr Todaro-Franceschi drives this point home in the second edition of her original work on professional quality of life for nurses. She demonstrates the inseparable link between nurses’ professional quality of life and the delivery of high-quality, safe patient care. This new edition of Compassion Fatigue and Burnout in Nursing provides practical strategies for dealing with compassion fatigue, burnout, moral distress, and post-traumatic stress disorder, and it includes a new chapter on violence in health care. Another new chapter discusses improving the health of the work environment. Last, this book includes a toolkit for nurse leaders.
