11.17.20212021-11-17 2021-11-17 America/New_York Region 3: Understanding PTSD for Nurses: Assessment Intervention and Referral http://www.massnurses.org/news-and-events/events/p/event/12149 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. However, self- identification of the signs in symptoms of PTSD in themselves can be a challenge for nurses. The pandemic COVID crisis of 2020 and the ongoing case volume of variant COVID cases presents a situation where nurses are triggered frequently for PTSD in the workplace. In this interactive training, nurses will learn about normal human responses to traumatic events and how to help patients as well as themselves. 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 and colleagues and encourage referrals for treatment and care.
