With the cooperation of Project Knitwell, two oncology nurses at Medstar Georgetown University Hospital (MGUH) conducted a study that concluded that knitting can help reduce compassion fatigue (burnout) among oncology nurses. The Impact of a Knitting Intervention on Compassion Fatigue in Ocology Nurses by Lyndsay Anderson, MSN, OCN (R) FMP-BC and Christina Gustavson was published in the February 2016 issue of Clinical Journal of Oncology Nursing.
