Phase 3 of the Requirements of Participation went into effect Nov. 28, 2019. Surveyors will be asking us, the activity professional, how we are meeting the needs and ensuring quality of life for individuals suffering from Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). PTSD affects an estimated 70 percent of adults in the United States who have experienced a traumatic event at least once in their lives and up to 20 percent of these people go on to develop PTSD. This workshop will review the facts, risk factors, and information on how to provide quality of life to those with PTSD.
At the conclusion of this webinar, participants will be able to:
- State the definition of trauma
- Identify the facts of PTSD and growing trends
- Recognize the symptoms of those diagnosed with PTSD
- Identify the risk factors for developing PTSD
- List non-pharmacological interventions in treating individuals with PTSD
This program is appropriate for activity directors, life enrichment coordinators, and activity personnel in all assisted living and nursing facilities.
