Trauma Care Conference 2019 - Half Day Session - Psychosocial Consequence of Trauma
This half-day programme provides a summary of the projects about staff who care for people affected by trauma. It takes a realistic approach by recognising the pressures on staff who work in trauma care, but also adopts a positive frame in seeking to identify ways of tackling the problems that staff face. It focuses on the multidisciplinary project launched in September 2018 by the Faculty of Pre-Hospital Care (FPHC) in the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh. Professor Richard Williams is the director and Verity Kemp is the project manager.
An important feature of the work of the FPHC is that it is grounded in the experiences of frontline practitioners of all disciplines who work in pre-hospital settings and it seeks to find effective approaches to meeting their needs.
This programme at Trauma Care 2019 is intended to inform attendees about what is going on with a view to finding effective ways forward to meet the needs of healthcare staff who work in trauma care in particular. Contributors to the project will present material from their explorations into the nature of colleagues’ needs and provide a framework for a comprehensive programme of actions. Attendees will be asked to share their opinions about positive steps that might be taken by colleagues, the professional bodies, employers and policymakers. They will be welcomed in offering their contributions to the future work of the multidisciplinary project, testing its recommendations and contributing to dissemination and implementation of the recommendations that will emerge during 2019.
