The relationship between a healthcare professional and their patient is often very close, and this proximity can expose staff to the distress and trauma experienced by patients. Caseloads can often include patients who have been affected by trauma, violence, abuse, death and fear, combined with a myriad of other physical and mental health issues.

Empathy and the desire to alleviate the pain and suffering of patients can dramatically enhance the connection between patient and worker. Unfortunately, this connection can have a serious psychological impact on the worker, with long-term consequences if left untreated (Upton 2018).

Empathic behaviour is associated with the mirroring of emotions and body movements between people (e.g. how laughing and yawning is considered to be contagious). In cases of trauma, the result is the mirroring of negative psychological issues in the healthcare worker.
