These programs are specifically developed for nurses in all practice settings caring for actual and/or potential patients with a COVID-19 diagnosis – this health care crisis is everywhere, it does not discriminate. After the SARS outbreak in 2003, both healthcare workers and people who were self-quarantined exhibited symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
