Presented by Johnson & Johnson: Addressing Health Workforce Moral Distress
A healthcare worker shortage is today’s reality, putting safe, quality healthcare at risk for everyone. According to the US Surgeon General's Advisory on Building a Thriving Health Workforce, the realities are that many of our health workplaces and practices are exhausting and demoralizing for our talented, caring, and overworked healthcare professionals. The emotional, physical, and psychological tolls explain why many are choosing to leave the health workforce early. Unaddressed, this crisis in care will make it harder for people to get care, increase healthcare costs, worsen health disparities, and care will feel less caring. Hear about what systemic, institutional, and policy changes are urgently needed.
