Abstract: Moral injury, defined as the psychological distress caused by perpetrating, failing to prevent, or witnessing acts that violate deeply held moral beliefs and expectations has been proposed as a specific risk factor for psychological distress among healthcare workers during COVID-19. This talk will present research on the relationship between moral injury, PTSD and CPTSD among UK health and social care workers in the UK during COVID-19 and will discuss prevention in the context of moral injury during the pandemic and other healthcare crises.
