Moral injury is defined as the sort of harm that results when someone has perpetrated, failed to prevent, or witnessed acts that transgress deeply held moral beliefs, an issue rarely addressed in traditional ethics education. Moral distress occurs in social work practice when a social worker encounters an ethical dilemma resulting from a conflict between institutional policies and what the social worker believes is the right course of action. Knowing what is right does not necessarily mean that social workers will do what is right. Often, it takes significant moral courage to do the right thing. Moral courage refers the virtue of having the strength to do what is right in the face of opposition.
