Suzi is joined by Vicky Thornton, who is the Head of Nursing at the University of Liverpool, to talk about moral distress and moral injury – two related concepts whereby a person feels unable to act in a way that aligns with their morals due to circumstances beyond their control – and the pressure or strain this can place on a person, as well as providing advice as to how to manage such feelings.
