Ethical Dilemmas for Nurses Due to COVID-19
This session will be live Feb. 16, from 10:30 – 11:30 a.m., CT. A recording of the session, evaluation, and certificate of completion will be available here within two business days following .
Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, nurses have faced several ethical dilemmas such as whether to risk the safety of their families by coming to work, staying home sick and leaving residents without adequate caregivers, as well as changes in care delivery like limited visitation that protected residents but also brought upon loneliness and isolation. These challenges weigh heavily on staff and could have an impact on their decision to stay in their job or leave the profession. This 60-minute session will provide strategies that facility leaders can implement to help retain staff by promoting healing and recovery while creating a culture of resiliency.
At the conclusion of this webinar, participants will be able to:
- Discuss the ethical dilemmas faced during the pandemic and their impact of staff
- Define compassion fatigue and moral distress, and provide detailed descriptions of what behaviors or symptoms staff might exhibit when suffering from them
- Discuss five strategies to help promote staff resilience
Appropriate for administrators, directors, owners, directors of nursing, and nurses in skilled nursing facilities and assisted living communities.
