Ep15 Recognizing Moral Distress


Throughout the pandemic, clinicians and others in healthcare began more open discussions about “moral distress” – a key stressor for those involved in delivering patient care and other first responders. So what is it? And how do you manage it? Crystal interviews Amanda Bush, MS, RN, a nurse with a background in Neonatal Intensive Care and a Masters degree in ethics, who specializes in helping clinicians deal with moral distress at MedStar Health’s Center for Wellbeing, and Lucia Wocial, PHD, RN, FAAN, HEC-C, a nurse and internationally renowned senior clinical ethicist with the John J. Lynch, MD, Center for Ethics at MedStar Health. They help define moral distress, talk about how to recognize it and how to manage it…and discuss why it’s important to continue the conversation about moral distress in health care.
