Welcome to the CE version of The Moral Distress Education Project. This multimedia program is completely free, but requires you to register and log-in in order to receive CE credit. This program functions as a self-guided documentary that provides up to 2.0 hours of AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ of Continuing Education credit to the viewer. To begin the program, simply begin watching the video clips prepared for Part 1, and take the post-test. You may proceed to the video clips in Parts 2 and 3 immediately after you complete Part 1, or return at different times, depending on your schedule and pace. If you do not require CE credit, you may selectively watch some or all of the video clips prepared for this program. In order to receive full credit for each Part, you’ll need to complete the post-test following Parts 1, 2 and 3.

Overall Goals

Unidentified or unresolved moral distress leads to retention problems; horizontal violence; and patient-care gaps. By the end of this program learners will understand the root causes of moral distress and how to prevent it by developing better communication strategies and systems-based approaches to reduce moral distress and moral residue, which improves patient care overall and faculty/staff competencies. By completing all three modules, you'll become aware of what moral distress is, and how it occurs. You’ll also be able to properly define moral distress and share definitions with colleagues/coworkers.

By completing this module, you’ll be able to join a national dialogue on this pervasive issue affecting healthcare providers! If you have comments or feedback on this program, or wish to contribute an interview or video diary clip, please contact us.
