Conference Summary

Predictors of Moral Distress in a US Sample of Critical Care Nurses is organized by American Association of Critical-Care Nurses (AACN) and will be held from Dec 31, 2017 - Jan 01, 2021.

Accreditation :
The American Association of Critical-Care Nurses (AACN) is accredited as a provider of nursing continuing professional development by the American Nurses Credentialing Center's (ANCC's) Commission on Accreditation, ANCC Provider Number 0012. AACN has been approved as a provider of continuing education in nursing by the California State Board of Nursing (CBRN), California Provider number CEP 1036. This activity is approved for 1.00 contact hours.

AACN programming meets the standards for most states that require mandatory continuing education contact hours for license and/or certification renewal. AACN recommends consulting with your state board of nursing or credentialing organization before submitting CE to fulfill continuing education requirements.

Activity Summary :
The intensive care unit (ICU) represents a practice environment where there is an intersection between life-sustaining and end-of-life care. At the forefront of care delivery in the ICU are registered nurses who often experience moral distress. Additionally, there is a body of evidence which emphasizes that healthcare organizations that are committed to fostering healthy practice environments and optimizing the quality of patient care, not only have lower nurse turnover, but their nurses also have lower states of moral distress.

Objectives :
• Identify influential predictors of the frequency of moral distress.
• Demonstrate the relationship between moral distress frequency and the perception of the practice environment.
• Correlate data to explain the relationship between Beacon recognition and the experience of moral distress.
