Managing Burnout, Moral Distress, and Ethical Conflict in Health Care
Everyone working in health and human services is affected by the relentless pressure to do more, with less, and for less. The result is a cataclysmic rise in burnout that impacts workers, clients, and organizations. The physical and emotional stresses on workers are often enough to motivate them to abandon careers they expected to last a lifetime. Clients suffer as providers have less time and fewer resources, and organizations suffer as they have greater difficulty fulfilling their missions and retaining and replacing skilled employees.
Richard B. (Dick) Stuart is a psychologist with more than 50 years of clinical, teaching, and research experience, including decades of service on hospital ethics committees. Reflecting his long experience of helping hundreds of patients successfully orchestrate their end-of-life care, he recently created the site www.6stepslivingwill.org. Dr. Stuart received an MSW and a DSW from the Columbia School of Social Work. He has authored more than a hundred papers and several books on topics ranging from ethics and behavioral self-management to the treatment of domestic violence.
