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). PTSD can last months or years, with triggers that can bring back memories of the trauma accompanied by intense emotional and physical reactions. This program will give you the knowledge and skills needed to recognize PTSD in yourself, colleagues, loved ones and/or patients and the strategies to manage it.
