Summary of the presentation:
Moral distress is a pervasive phenomenon in healthcare and contributes to healthcare worker burnout, turnover and withdrawal from patient care. The COVID-19 pandemic further served to highlight the negative impact of moral distress. In this presentation, Dr. Morley will describe the empirical basis for the development and refinement of moral distress into 5 sub-categories and will argue that a broader approach to moral distress can help to build a foundation for a moral community. Dr. Morley will then provide strategies that healthcare professionals, teams and institutions can utilize to mitigate the negative effects of moral distress and strengthen their moral communities.
