Ethics in Practice 36th Annual Human Values Forum 2020
Moral injury occurs when we perpetrate, bear witness to, or fail to prevent an act that transgresses our deeply held moral beliefs. In the health care context, that deeply held belief is the oath we each took when embarking on our paths as health care providers: Put the needs of patients first. That oath the guiding principle when searching for the right course of action, but as clinicians, we're increasingly forced to consider the demands of other stakeholders—the electronic medical record (EMR), the insurers, the hospital, the health care system, even our own financial security—before the needs of our patients. Every time we are forced to make a decision that contravenes our patients’ best interests, we feel a sting of moral injustice. Over time, these repetitive insults amass into moral injury.
This course is intended for all physician members and caregivers including NP's, RN's Allied, PA, techs, chaplains, social work, residents, fellows
At the end of this session, learners should be able to:
- Identify the causes of moral distress and injury in the provision of health care
- Discuss the current expansion of that definition to include the cumulation of loss in 2020 that can result in moral injury
- Apply principles to assist them in dealing with emotional, spiritual as well as professional health
