04.01.20202020-04-01 2020-04-01 America/New_York Region 3: Understanding PTSD: Assessment, Intervention, and Referral Skills for Nurses http://www.massnurses.org/news-and-events/events/p/event/11544 MNA MNA firstname.lastname@example.org
Description: Nurses are in a unique position to recognize the varied symptoms of PTSD in patients who are suffering from the stress associated with experiencing traumatic events. In this interactive training, nurses will learn about normal human responses to traumatic events and how to help. We will explore the range of symptoms of PTSD and discuss sensitive means of assessment and intervention. Through case examples, we will consider how nurses can support their patients by evaluating their readiness for change and strengthen the motivation of their patients to accept referrals for treatment and care.
