Compassion in rehabilitation nursing: a study of nurses’ perceptions and experiences of compassion in caring in the inpatient rehabilitation setting

About the Project

The proposed impact of this study has two major elements. Professional practice: insights will inform training needs and innovations within the study setting, with potential to strengthen the specialty of rehabilitation nursing in general.
Organisation: indirect effect of revealing assumptions regarding nurses’ capacity for and scope of compassion in frontline practice, and potential strategies for change.

The study aims to increase awareness among pilot participants (staff and patients) that self and mutual compassion increases quality outcomes, patient confidence in self care and thereby reduces complications. Increased confidence among staff important for maintaining a specialty frontline workforce such as those as Jasmine Unit.
