Moral distress, a diagnostic tool that may be useful for paramedics

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Moral distress is a diagnostic category identified in nursing literature as a source of burn-out and attrition in caring professions. To date it has not been applied to paramedic practice, but the evidence from community service research indicates that moral distress is prevalent in caring professions. It is particularly relevant to workers who are motivated by intrinsic moral values to make a difference or do good in the world.
