Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder – Raphael’s Story

46 students

Rates of Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) have significantly increased over the past decade among military members returning from Iraq, Afghanistan and other war-zone areas. It is anticipated that the associated rates of suicide, PTSD and depression will continue to rise in the coming years. As a result, these military members and veterans may need to increasingly turn to non-military providers for mental health care. Signs and symptoms may be difficult to recognize, but as nurses, we can use critical thinking to assess patients at risk. We are positioned to make an impact by identifying patients and advocating for treatment. The virtual simulation games and related resources were developed to help nurses successfully recognize and manage PTSD in patients.
