Research shows there is a high occurrence of stress in the lives of healthcare providers, including nurses, and this can have a significant effect on psychological health and well-being. This webinar will explore the potential impact of a high stress work environment and the patterns and prevalence of developing Post Traumatic Stress. Strategies to increase awareness and support wellness within the nursing profession will also be discussed.

The live Q&A will include discussion on the care of patients post-COVID and how the pandemic may have a long-term impact on their psychological health and well-being.
At the end of this presentation participants will be able to:
- Define post-traumatic stress and common signs and symptoms
