"We are white coats whirling round"--moral distress in Swedish pharmacies

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskriftTidsskriftartikelForskningfagfællebedømt

The extended role of pharmacists has made pharmacy practice more complex and increased the moral responsibility of pharmacy staff. Consequently, ethics has become an important part of their daily work. In health care, ethical dilemmas have been shown to cause distress, usually referred to as "moral distress". Moral distress among hospital personnel has been well described and discussed in numerous studies. There are very few similar studies in pharmacy settings. This article reports on the results of an investigation concerning whether and in what situations moral distress is present in pharmacy practice.
