Background & Aims: Caring behaviors are the foundation of nursing work, and the theoretical principles of nursing are based on the understanding of care and caring behaviors. On the other hand, self-compassion is the ability to be kind to oneself and it can be a powerful source and a foundation and principle for taking good care of others, so the purpose of this research is to investigate the relationship between self-compassion and caring behaviors of nurses in the covid-19 pandemic.
Materials & Methods: This cross-sectional research was conducted with the participation of 124 nurses working in selected hospitals of Iran University of Medical Sciences from the beginning of April to the end of May 2022. The samples were selected as available. Data collection was done using the demographic and occupational information form, self-assessment questionnaire for nurses' caring behavior (Wolf), and self-compassion questionnaire (Neff). The questionnaires were completed by self-report method. After collecting the data, using SPSS Ver. 22 were statistically analyzed by Spearman's correlation coefficient test, Mann-Whitney test, Kruskal-Wallis test and linear regression method.
Results: The mean and standard deviation of the total care behaviors were equal to 82.06±7.76, which showed that the nurses evaluated the care behaviors with a relatively high score. The highest score was in the dimension of professional knowledge and skill. The mean and standard deviation of total self-compassion was equal to 79.47±12.73. The results of the Spearman correlation coefficient test showed that the relationship between self-compassion and caring behavior is positive and significant (P<0.05). Also, by using the linear regression method, there is a significant and direct linear relationship between the two variables.
Conclusion: According to the findings, self-compassion has a relationship with caring behaviors. This means that with the increase of self-compassion, caring behaviors also improve. It is suggested that through teaching self-compassion and self-care skills, that is, the desire to be kind and self-understanding, the feeling of mutual connection with other people, and having mental awareness of negative experiences, improved the quality of nurses' care behaviors.
