When utilizing this I will be able to determine the drug that is used, how frequently it is used, problems that have resulted from the use, degree of drug dependence, any presence of medical harm, and if she has any motivation to change (Miller, Forcehimes, & Zweben, 2011). Through the collection of this information, I would be able to determine that prescription pain medication and alcohol would be the drugs being evaluated and the reason for treatment. The reasoning for this is because not only has she been exposed to drinking by her family, but she has also tried it. Which could develop into a problem, if not addressed. Also, overdosing on prescription pain medication that was not hers points to more potential problems, if not addressed right away.

An estimated 12% of nurses leave nursing annually because of back injuries and more than half complain of chronic back pain.

Fatigue is defined as physical and/or mental depletion that can be caused by stress, medication, overwork or mental and physical illness or disease (The Free Medical Dictionary, n.d.). Carla Joinson first linked CF with nurses in 1992, when she described a syndrome that occurs when nurses care for patients experiencing traumas or life-altering events (Joinson, 1992). It is seen most often in roles of caregivers, such as nurses, and it is associated with the caring of patients in emotional and physical pain. Compassion fatigue is used to explain a feeling of being depleted, physically, emotionally and spiritually, after an extended contact to compassion stressors (Braunschneider, 2013). It has been called the "inability to nurture" (Joinson, 1992, p. 119).
