Nursing Professor Calls for Research to Resolve Workplace Distress Among Clinicians

School of Nursing professor and nurse-bioethicist Connie Ulrich is calling for more research to be done to find a solution for moral distress among health care professionals.

Ulrich's Sept. 23 commentary piece, “Moral Distress and Moral Strength Among Clinicians in Health Care Systems: A Call for Research,” asserts that health care professionals often experience moral stress because they have to use their judgment to deal with ethically complex, stressful situations. These issues may drive clinicians to question their moral strength and ability to provide care, ultimately diminishing workplace resiliency.
