Sjuksköterskor ska visa empati och agera ur ett etiskt ändamålsenligt sätt i mötet med patienter. Till trauma räknas när människokroppen utsatts för högenergetiskt våld genom trafikolycka eller penetrerat/icke-penetrerat våld. Schusters avhandling visar hur sjuksköterskors upplevelser av arbetet påverkar privatlivet, hennes profession och hur dessa existentiella rum påverkar varandra.

Slutsats: Coping-strategier, kollegialt stöd och stress var de redskap och känslor som sjuksköterskor beskrev var del av hennes arbete med traumapatienter.
