Moral Distress in Healthcare in the Wake of COVID-19 - Self Study

The impact of moral distress during the COVID-19 pandemic presented unique challenges and opportunities for healthcare workers across disciplines. This webinar discusses the fundamental issues related to moral distress using evidence-based literature and case examples from hospice and palliative care. It uses examples of distress unveiled during COVID-19 to better understand the impact of moral distress and trauma among healthcare providers. The program discusses the importance for all healthcare providers and leaders to understand the impact of moral distress not only on their colleagues but patients & families as well. 

A primary aim of the webinar is to provide strategies and considerations for individuals, teams, and institutions to mitigate the harmful effects of moral distress. Including, the capacity to identify your own moral distress; team strategies to mitigate distress; and institutional obligations such as debriefings, to normalize and provide support for ongoing moral dilemmas.
