Developing the capacities that help clinicians recognize moral adversity and suffering in their daily work and efforts to support them to design and practice strategies that protect their integrity at the heart of clinical practice. These capacities include knowing fundamental values, cultivating mindful awareness and self-attunement, cultivating reflection and insight, developing moral and ethical efficacy, engaging in activities that support self-stewardship, and engaging in ongoing, transformational learning. Each of these capacities must be intentionally cultivated and practiced. Clinicians can begin wherever they are to explore each of them in a synergistic manner. They are enabled by a culture that encourages clinicians to regularly do the right thing for the right reason without fear of reprisal.
