Synopsis

It is important to distinguish burnout from moral injury, with the former concept more focused on personal resilience, and the latter defined as extrinsic circumstances that lead to disconnection with one’s career. A key finding from the study was the negative correlation between degree of moral injury and quality of life. Respondents’ free text answers identified a variety of factors contributing to moral injury. The doctors also speak about strategies for addressing moral injury such as psychotherapy, spiritual care, and physical exercise. Most importantly, they believe it is crucial to target systemic factors with efforts to increase physician leadership, administrative support, and research in physician wellness.
