ANA is Accepting Applications for their Moral Resilience Professional Issues Panel

The American Nurses Association’s Center for Ethics and Human Rights is seeking applications for a Moral Resilience Professional Issues Panel to be convened January 2017. The panel will develop policy and identify strategies to strengthen moral resilience within practicing nurses. The goal of strengthening moral resilience is to address the phenomena of moral distress. Moral distress occurs when nurses know what the morally right thing to do is, but institutional, procedural or social constraints make doing the right thing nearly impossible. Moral distress threatens the core values and moral integrity of nurses and other health care providers. The panel will conduct its work over a 4-6 month period. Applications must be received by ANA by December 1, 2016.
