The reliability and validity found for the Professional Quality of Life Scale (ProQOL):
Compassion Satisfaction α = .88 (n=1130)
Burnout α = .75 (n=976)
Compassion Fatigue α = .81 (n=1135)
inter?scale correlations show 2% shared variance (r=?.23; co?σ = 5%; n=1187) with Secondary Traumatic Stress and 5% shared variance (r=.?.14; co?σ = 2%; n=1187) with Burnout
