Moral Distress in Healthcare in the Wake of COVID-19

The impact of moral distress during the COVID-19 pandemic presents unique challenges and opportunities for healthcare workers across disciplines.

This webinar will discuss the fundamental issues related to moral distress using evidence-based literature and case examples from hospice and palliative care. We will use examples of distress unveiled during COVID-19 to better understand the impact of moral distress and trauma among healthcare providers. We will discuss 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.

One of the best presentations on moral distress I have attended. The speakers were wonderful. Could have spent the entire day listening to them.

Excellent program!  I plan to look up several of the references highlighted. Thank you!

Thank you!  Great program!  Loved how relevant the topic was to what is going on now in my practice and and the world.
