ALBERT WU, M.D., INTRODUCES
Caring For The Caregiver

THE CHALLENGE

Health care providers face the stress of patient care every hour of every day, and in most cases they handle that stress well. But then there are those times when normal stress blows up into something potentially traumatic–the unexpected loss of a patient; a troubling encounter with a family member; even a run-in with a colleague over care management. At these times, otherwise steady professionals can become psychologically or emotionally devastated “second victims,” who could use prompt support from peers. Most hospitals and other health care facilities, however, do not have a support system in place, and without support, caregivers experience reduced productivity, increased self-doubt and, in some cases, long-term depression.

THE SOLUTION

Caring for the Caregiver: Implementing RISE (Resilience in Stressful Events) is a training program that teaches you how to set up a peer-to-peer support program in your hospital and how to teach a multi-disciplinary team of hospital volunteers how to respond and support a team member involved in an unanticipated patient event, stressful situation, or patient-related injury.
