Moral Injury or Burnout?

Burnout is a term that has been used to describe a condition professionals in the field and caregivers have experienced related to their work. With the emergence of the COVID19 pandemic, are we accurately categorizing what professionals and caregivers are feeling when we use the term burnout?

The past few years have seen growing attention to the term “moral injury.” This term may more accurately describe what many are experiencing globally as they struggle to maintain high standards of patient care.

Relias has put together a mental health toolkit for providers and in it are a number of blog posts and webinars that explore the concepts of burnout and moral injury, as well as, why using the right term matters. You can find that toolkit here.
