6:30 – Dr. Wendy Dean Presentation
7:15 – Q&A / Facilitated Discussion
The term moral injury has been gaining popularity online, especially after Wendy Dean MD and Simon Talbot MD’s article was released on STAT news. Moral Injury is an important topic to discuss as this terminology offers a broader understanding than the word “burnout.”
“Burnout suggests a health professional is at fault for their emotional state: they aren’t resilient enough, and that they need to learn to recover better. Yet moral injury suggests something larger is at play. The consequences of this terminology and mindset change are immense, as we learn that hospital dynamics, insurance, litigation, electronic medical records, and policy must evolve, for health professionals to thrive.”
Join us as Wendy Dean, MD discusses moral injury and its implications on healthcare.
