Moral distress has received increasing attention in the health professional literature, where it has been implicated in burnout, empathy erosion, and attrition from frontline patient care activities. This interactive presentation will review the pertinent moral distress literature and will explore ways that medical educators can help their trainees cope with and grow from these experiences. Participants will be encouraged to draw on their experiences in the course of the presentation. At the end of this session, participants will be able to: 1. Define moral distress and related concepts 2. Describe potential implications of moral distress for our trainees. Bonnie M.
