Borrowed Words in Emergency Medicine : How ‘Moral Injury’ Makes Space for Talking

This chapter explores the concept of moral injury and its application to the experience of healthcare professionals and allied health professionals. By outlining concepts such as burnout, compassion fatigue and PTSD it orientates the reader to the field of enquiry. It reports the research the author undertook with medical students and explores the ways in which this interrelates with current thinking about moral injury in the health service in the UK.
