Abstract

In the second part of this three-part series, David Hunter and colleagues discuss the barriers to the provision of compassionate care in emergency departments (EDs). Part one reported findings from doctoral-level research exploring nursing students’ experiences of compassionate care in EDs. Many of the findings related to what the students considered as barriers to the provision of compassionate care in this clinical environment. Six barriers to compassionate care were identified and this article considers them in detail.
