Moral Injury in Healthcare Workers on the Frontlines of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Outbreak [open pdf - 331KB]
From the Document: "Moral injury (sometimes referred to as 'moral distress') can occur when someone engages in, fails to prevent, or witnesses acts that conflict with their values or beliefs. Most healthcare workers typically do not experience significant distress from difficult situations at work because of their training and preparation, healthcare cultural norms, messages and behavior of peers and leaders, and acceptance by families and the culture at large. However, in unprecedented contexts, such as a pandemic, some people may have difficulty with unfamiliar and potentially distressing work experiences."
