On this J|Insights our CEO, David Jarrard, talks about a really interesting article titled Beyond burnout: Docks Decry ‘Moral Injury’ from Financial Pressures of Healthcare. It's by Melissa Bailey over at Kaiser Health News and was published on February 4.
The idea of moral injury actually started in military and combat situations. It's this idea that it's not just stress and it's not just frustration with things being a certain way, but it's actually being in a position where you feel forced do something or not do something that, as a result of that action or inaction, leads to harm for someone. And we're seeing that as part of the massive burnout problem among physicians today.
