We aim to provide comprehensive education for healthcare providers on effectively engaging with patients who have undergone psychological trauma, a distinct experience from physical injury trauma. Our goal is to create an environment of safety and trust, ultimately enhancing patients' willingness to pursue healthcare and adhere to treatment plans.
The impact of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) transcends cultural, age, gender, and socioeconomic boundaries, affecting a diverse spectrum of individuals seeking medical attention. In the midst of their demanding schedules, healthcare professionals must be well-versed in recognizing potential PTSD cases, enabling them to administer empathetic and successful care while also preventing the inadvertent retriggering of trauma.
