Session presented on Saturday, July 26, 2014: Purpose: The purpose of this study was to identify compassion fatigue(CF), somatization, and silencing response(SR) among nurses and understand intermediate effects between variables. Methods: The sample of 240 nurses who were working in medical, surgical wards and emergency room had shift-work in 3 hospitals with over 700 beds. A structured questionnaire was used and included CF, Somatization and SR scale. The data were analyzed using descriptive statistics, ANOVA, Pearson's correlation coefficients and stepwise multiple regression. Results: There were statistically significant differences in CF, somatization and SR depending on perceived personal health condition, experience of turnover, co-worker support. There were significant correlations among those study variables. The result also indicated that burnout (= .810, p<.001) which is a part of secondary traumatic stress and somatization (= .786, p<.001) have the role of partial mediator in the relationship between secondary traumatic stress and silencing response. Conclusion: The result of study that intermediary role by burnout and somatization in silencing response of nurses is important for effective human resource management in hospital nursing.
