Variation in the barriers to compassion across healthcare training and disciplines: A cross-sectional study of doctors, nurses, and medical students.

Int J Nurs Stud 2018 Oct 26;90:1-10. Epub 2018 Oct 26.

Department of Psychological Medicine, University of Auckland, Private Bag 92019, Auckland 1142, New Zealand. Electronic address:

Background: Despite the established importance of compassion in health, studies examining the specific barriers to compassionate care in healthcare are few. Recent work suggests that examining differences as a function of professional development and identifying variation in barriers to compassionate care across professions may highlight the origins of barriers and inform the development of compassion-enhancing interventions suited to the unique challenges of different professions and stages of training.

Objectives: To explore whether the barriers to compassion vary (a) between physicians and nurses and (b) across samples of physicians and medical students (i. Read More
