Burnout and Moral Distress Among Frontline Clinicians During the COVID-19 Pandemic

The COVID-19 pandemic presented enormous challenges to the American health care system, and prioritizing the well-being of frontline clinicians is paramount. Even before the pandemic, nearly half of US physicians reported experiencing burnout, with pulmonologists reporting a rate of 41%.

In this special issue of Clinical Perspectives, CHEST is providing a preview of research undertaken by a team of clinicians and social scientists at the University of Minnesota to explore burnout and moral distress among health care providers in ICU and acute care settings during the COVID-19 pandemic.
