Reflection: A Healthcare Professional’s Take on Moral Injury and Burnout & What We Can We Begin Doing About It Now

In a recent article in The Lancet, titled: ‘Eliminating burnout and moral injury: Bolder steps required,’ they discuss 10 ways in which organizations can take better care of their healthcare providers to minimize burnout and moral injury. In this episode, I will be reflecting on the findings in this article, along with my most recent interviews, and applying my own personal experience with burnout and moral injury. I share some of the risks of burnout in healthcare professionals such as; emotional exhaustion, depersonalization, lack of professional efficacy, lack of engagement, and more. 

 

Listen to the full episode to learn:

  • What moral injury is and why it’s common in the healthcare industry 
  • Why there is a high correlation between burnout and moral injury 
  • What can be done in order to reduce moral injury and provide a better workplace for healthcare professionals 
  • How not all work can be accounted for in statistics and why ‘invisible work’ is so important
