What We May Never Recover From: COVID Occupational Moral Injury


The term 'moral injury' was not widely used by care leaders before the pandemic, nor has the term moral repair been used in COVID response planning or health-care leadership common parlance. However, even if the terminology is relatively new, examples of moral injury and practices of moral repair will be recognizable to many. For the benefit of us all, we need our governments, professional associations, and care delivery organizations to demonstrate that they have the backs and well-being of both front-line care givers and the public now.
