Passionate Care’s updated report has been developed by medical workers to offer support to fellow healthcare professionals, in response to the increased number of stress, anxiety, and PTSD cases since the pandemic began.

PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) is a mental health disorder commonly associated with military veterans and individuals who have been exposed to extensive trauma. It is characterized by continuing experiences of trauma following a traumatic event or series of events, causing ongoing stress and anxiety after the incident and over long periods. Due to the recent pandemic, the number of cases of PTSD amongst medical professionals has increased, thought to be a result of the considerable additional pressure placed on healthcare workers.

It details the reasoning for diagnoses of PTSD, explaining that repeated emotional trauma, pressure to perform, and constant exposure to high-stress environments are contributing factors.

With the latest report, Passionate Care continues to provide valuable, informative resources for nurses, doctors, and medical workers of all types.
