Correctional health care staff experience moral distress when institutional constraints deprive them from practicing in an ethical and safe environment. This presentation will focus on evidence-based practices that correctional health care staff can use to increase moral resilience. Using ethical principles and evidence-based practices, the audience will learn practical approaches to promote moral resilience through self-care techniques and small group discussion that will move them beyond surviving to thriving.
