Health professionals in the United States who treat warriors returned from combat in the Middle East describe a phenomenon now called moral injury. It occurs in addition to PTSD & includes intensely unpleasant feelings of worthlessness and shame in having witnessed or in being complicit with moral atrocities in the Middle East. This presentation theorizes that health professionals witness a less devastating but still extremely serious variant of this by way of a variety of situations involving working with disruptive and defiant family members, experiencing workplace bullying, encountering allegations of harm-causing medical error, and facing impossible production pressures and quotas. Learning Objectives 1) Differentiate the ideas of moral injury and more de-centeredness. 2) List examples of de-centering elements in health care environments. 3) Discuss ways to prevent the chronic and persistent experience of de-centeredness in health care.
