This guide to moral injury during COVID-19 has been developed as a practical resource for healthcare workers and organisations to better understand the range of moral emotions arising from the COVID-19 pandemic and to develop organisational and individual strategies to mitigate risks of lasting harm.

In seeking to understand moral distress and moral injury in the context of COVID-19, we need to consider the range of potential moral stressors, and the range of emotional responses. Managing emotional responses in the COVID-19 environment is crucial to supporting healthcare workers and preventing lasting moral injury or harm.
