Age, ethnicity, practice type and other factors also were linked to components of compassion fatigue in at least one of two years professionals were surveyed, and Drs. Michael Dicks and Bridgette Bain note that research generally supports a strong link between adequate compensation and professional satisfaction. DVM360.com (11/29)
