Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Part 2 - Interventions is organized by Nurse.com - OnCourse Learning Corporation and will be held from Dec 15, 2016 - Dec 15, 2019. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 1.0 Contact Hours.
The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs National Center for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) indicates at some point in their lives, 7% to 8% of the U.S. population will suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder, although more than half will experience a trauma. During any given year, about 8 million adults are diagnosed with PTSD. Trauma -- whether resulting from a natural disaster (such as floods and fires) or human-made catastrophes -- produces psychological as well as physical wounding. This educational activity will discuss management of PTSD-related symptoms.
The goal of this continuing education program is to update nurses’ knowledge of the identification and care of patients with post-traumatic stress disorder. After studying the information presented here, you will be able to:
• Identify treatment approaches for PTSD
• Relate the appropriate steps in establishing a relationship with a client with PTSD
• Indicate considerations in PTSD symptom management
Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
