Abstract [en]

The purpose of this paper is to discuss moral stress in IT-based work and its relation to health and well being. The paper introduces improved ethical competence, by personal skills and organizational processes, as ways to handle moral problems and thereby to increase efficiency and well being at work and to decrease stress related health risks. The paper also discusses the validity of methods to assess the relationship of certain ethical aspects, such as ethical competence and ethical confidence, to stress and health aspects in IT-supported work. A questionnaire, Health and Moral Stress Questionnaire (HMSQ), was constructed and used. The results showed that moral stress is positively correlated to risky ways of using information technology and to work stress, and negatively correlated to ethical competence and ethical confidence.
