Topic:  Caring for Caregivers: Building Peer Support Systems

Healthcare provider reactions to stress can manifest in a variety of ways and can vary over time.  Early signs and symptoms of acute stress reactions can include, fatigue, shock, anger, worry, burnout and guilt.  Later signs and symptoms may include avoidance, replaying of an event, poor concentration, poor memory, and a numbing of emotions.  Healthcare providers who are experiencing signs and symptoms of stress are often times are not be able to provide optimal, high quality, safe care to patients.  While we cannot prevent all of the stress that healthcare providers experience, we can provide them with support. Peer support is a proven, effective method of helping healthcare workers deal with stressful events related to direct patient care.   This presentation will detail how stress is manifested and how the application of “psychological first aid” helps the second victim remains resilient through an event.
