Title: Ethical climate and moral distress in Nordic pediatric oncology care
Summary: This project explored perceptions of ethical climate and moral distress among 543 healthcare professionals (HCPs) working at Nordic pediatric oncology centers. While perceptions of ethical climate were mostly positive, only one third of the HCPs assessed that they could most often practice care the way they thought it should be practiced. The highest moral distress levels involved unsafe staffing levels, poor continuity of care and lack of time. Only 6 % of the HCPs considered quitting due to moral distress at the time of the survey.
