Abstract

With symptoms as varied as anger, short attention span, physical exhaustion, and a poor self-concept, burnout in nurses, especially in those caring for dying patients, can result in compromised patient care. The solution is simple but perhaps not easy: self-care. The 13th in a series on palliative nursing care.
