Animal Health SmartBrief | Dec 01, 2016

New data from the AVMA sheds light on compassion fatigue among veterinarians, with hours worked per week, academic readiness for professional tasks and overall satisfaction with current employment all having a statistically significant effect on burnout and secondary traumatic stress. 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)
