About the Event
“Moral injury can occur when an individual perpetrates, fails to prevent, bears witness to, or learns about acts that transgress their deeply held moral beliefs and expectations.” - Dr. Alyson Zalta, Assistant Professor of Psychological Science and speaker.
Moral injury has largely been studied in the military context, but there is increasing recognition that there are a number of other populations that are likely exposed to morally injurious events. We're honored to host several experts to discuss how COVID-19 has created fertile ground for these types of events to occur in acute care settings.
In collaboration with American Nurses Association\California and HealthImpact, Dr. Alyson Zalta, Dr. Candace Burton, and Dr. Danisha Jenkins (ANA\California Member) are in progress with a study that will use a longitudinal mixed-methods approach to establish:
- what experiences contribute to moral injury,
- the environmental and psychological conditions that increase risk for morally-injurious workplace events, and
- how morally injurious workplace events affect psychological and occupational outcomes among frontline nurses during the COVID-19 crisis.
