Module II of the Achieving Compliance in Behavioral Health Series

Mental Health: Recognizing and Addressing Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
March 20
3:00 pm - 4:30 pm
CE for NHA, Nurses, CEHCH, CEAL, Social Work

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) can be a complicated and challenging condition to manage, both for the person suffering the disease and those providing care and treatment. The symptoms of PTSD can lead to a host of psychosocial problems, including job loss, family discord, and substance abuse. Ensuring staff understand and appreciate the many ways stress-related reactions can manifest is essential to establishing a proactive approach to symptom management. Recognizing these reactions as something the affected individual has little ability to control is key to creating a care environment in which healing and quality of life is achievable. This session offers a framework for staff education and training, and the development of care and services to meet the needs of residents impacted by stress-related disorders.

Objectives: At the conclusion of this series, the participant will be able to:

1. Explain the care needs and accommodations for residents diagnosed with PTSD.:
2. Explain the importance of understanding the symptoms and challenges associated with a diagnosis of PTSD or related trauma: and
3. Develop improved methods for the assessment and person-centered care planning for residents with behavioral health needs.
