AIM: This paper aims to explore participants' reasons for their choice of interview method in qualitative research focusing on a sensitive subject. METHODS: Qualitative data was collected from 12 participants regarding their choice of interview method (face-to-face, Skype, telephone or email) in a wider study investigating parents' experiences following their child's burn-injury...

It is of interest to evaluate whether relationships between resilience and psychological outcomes remain consistent across nations and among different nursing populations. AIM: To evaluate a theoretical model of the impact of resilience on burnout (BO), secondary traumatic stress (STS) and compassion satisfaction (CS) by comparing results between nurses in Canada and Singapore...
