Compassion fatigue is a label affixed to the concept of personal vicarious exposure to trauma on a regular basis – and nowhere is this truer than in the day-to-day life of an oncology nurse. Although nurses who work with cancer patients may have learned how to effectively deal with pain and suffering, repeated exposure can put even the most experienced oncology nurse at risk for negative emotional and physical outcomes.
