Moral distress is different from an ethical dilemma – moral distress is defined as a situation in which one believes he/she knows the appropriate ethical action to take but is unable to take that action (Jameton, 1984); whereas an ethical dilemma is a situation with two morally different but acceptable courses of action or a situation with two morally unacceptable courses of action and a choice is needed to resolve the conflict (Hamric, Spross & Hanson, 2000).


When healthcare providers experience moral distress, they are more likely to consider leaving or leave their current position or even the profession. This leads to staffing shortages, burnout, and ultimately effect patient care and possibly patient outcomes.
