There is increasing awareness among healthcare providers of the emotional toll caused by acutely stressful cases. COPED, or Counsellor/psychiatrist, Outcome was uncontrollable, Personal stress management, Experience resulting from this event, and Debriefing/defusing, is an acronym providing guidance for managing stress. Employment of COPED can help prevent the development of more permanent psychiatric conditions, such as PTSD, in healthcare providers following such events.Session Objectives:
• Ability to implement the “COPED” acronym if/when a traumatic event occurs in the health care setting.
• Describe situations that could lead to the development of an acute stress response.
• Discuss further techniques that could identify acute stress reactions and implement these resources to attempt in preventing long-term psychiatric conditions.
