Abstract or Summary

This presentation to the ANEC conference in Sept 2017, was on current research related to compassion in undergraduate nursing students, which was part of a longitudinal study. The presentation outlined the methodology and results identified, which indicated that they suitability of the methodology used for obtaining information about comppasion was sound. The results show that students at Wintec enter study programmes to become health care professional with compassionate attributes. This information could be used by educators to strengthen and maintain compassion attributes by maintaining and reinforcing the values, hopes and aspirations that brought the students into the profession. Compassion should be monitored in all healthcare related professions as a critical factor in maintaining and preserving this vital aspect of healthcare delivery.
