Moral Injury: Alleviating Moral Suffering

Though origins of the term “moral injury” can be traced back to religious bioethics, most modern usage comes from a recognition of a syndrome of guilt, shame, and sense of betrayal experienced when a person feels like they crossed a line with respect to their moral beliefs. Unresolved moral injury can complicate the care of patients with serious illness or those at end of life. Therefore, it is very important for hospice and palliative care providers to have a good understanding of the complexities of moral injury. In this presentation, we explored the varied situations that generate moral injury, with a special emphasis on Veteran care, and discussed how to ease moral suffering at the end of life.
