A new paradigm for addressing the consequences of moral adversity, especially when it produces moral suffering, is an urgent priority for the healthcare system. The time is now for clinicians, leaders, healthcare organizations, and communities to align their values and commitments and to design for sustainable and meaningful results. More empirical and scholarly work is needed to expand upon the concepts offered in this book. We must foster innovation that sources our inner capacity, shifts patterns that no longer serve a useful purpose, and creates new methods and programs to cultivate moral resilience and a robust and lasting culture that supports ethical practice. Together we hold the keys to transforming moral suffering in healthcare.
