The current COVID19 pandemic has forced most of us into excessive demands and responsibilities. We need to maintain our resiliency not only at work but with the challenges we are facing in our personal lives. Stress, frustration, anxiety, fear, resentment, concerns, worry, sadness, and grief surround us daily. The risk to our own health and wellbeing is immeasurable.

The pandemic has placed us at risk for moral injury.  “Moral injury describes the challenge of simultaneously knowing what we should do but being unable to provide it due to constraints that are beyond our control.” – Wendy Dean, MD, Simon Talbot, MD & Austin Dean
