In the wake of COVID-19, healthcare workers have faced insurmountable challenges. An enormous emotional and psychological toll is being paid by our healthcare professionals who are coping with anxiety, depression, burnout, insomnia, PTSD, and moral distress due to the pandemic’s unprecedented nature. The very chaplains, psychologists, social workers, nurses, mental health counsellors, clinicians and therapists who are called upon to treat injury are now morally injured themselves.
To effectively support healthcare workers, we must understand their challenges and needs. By acknowledging the commonality of psychological distress related to caring for patients with COVID-19, we can destigmatize work-related mental health issues and attend to the mental health needs of all healthcare workers affected by the pandemic.
The Moral Injury Conference aims to bring medical and legal professionals together to understand moral injury, discuss ways to improve efficacy and build resilience by answering these fundamental questions:
