Moral injury refers to the lasting strong cognitive and emotional response that is caused by performing, witnessing, or failing to prevent an action that violates one’s own moral beliefs and expectations (Litz et al., 2009; 2019). Typically, moral injury research has been conducted within military settings, and more recently within healthcare.
This research aimed to:
- Develop an understanding of the experience of moral stress and injury within business settings
- Examine the antecedents, mediators and moderators of moral stress and injury within business settings
- Examine the outcomes of moral injury within business settings (including links with burnout)
