Psychological Trauma in EMS Patients (PTEP) is a 1-day, 8-hour course that gives EMS practitioners the resources they need to help alleviate patients’ hidden wounds – intense fear, stress, and pain – during an emergency.

PTEP educates EMS practitioners about the biological underpinnings of psychological trauma and will teach strategies and techniques to alleviate patients’ distress and help patients cope with what they’re experiencing to ward off lingering effects.  Additional time will be spent on recognizing and dealing with provider stress, both acute and chronic.

Topics covered include:

  • The invisible wounds of psychological trauma
  • Reducing psychological traumatic stress
  • Understanding the psychological stress response
  • Recognizing psychological trauma within EMS

Lectures will be supplemented with scenarios to help the provider apply de-escalation via the eSCAPe principle, Every patient, Provide social support, give patients choices, anticipate what will happen next, help patients plan and organize, every time.

Join us for this important course, Thursday, November 29th from 0900-1700.

Free for MLSS providers and $125 for non-MLSS employees.
