On September 9, 2022, AHN will host the First Annual AHN Clinical Ethics Symposium, entitled Aligning Moral Distress and Resilience:  An Imperative in Healthcare.  

Aligning Moral Distress and Resilience: 
An Imperative in Health Care

Health care professionals are routinely called to witness and respond to human suffering while caring for others. The resulting anguish, anxiety, and frustration we feel can lead to moral distress — impacting our emotional, physical, behavioral, and spiritual selves.

 This in-person, highly interactive symposium will help you recognize the effects of moral suffering and distress in yourself and others. You will learn resilience strategies and tools to help recover and rebound from the adversity of moral distress and regain balance to focus on delivering quality care.

Plan now to attend this important and timely event. Hear from the preeminent authorities in moral suffering and resilience while exploring these matters with your peers. 

Target Audience
