Risk for PTSD, depression detectable early on in paramedics

July 14, 2016

Risk for post-trauma psychiatric disorders may be detectable within the first week of paramedic training, according to recent findings.

“Emergency workers are regularly exposed to stressful and traumatic situations and some of them will experience periods of mental illness,” Jennifer Wild, BSc (Hons), MSc, DClinPsy, of the University of Oxford, said in a press release. “Some of the factors that make that more likely can be changed through resilience training, reducing the risk of PTSD and depression. We wanted to test whether we could identify such risk factors, making it possible to spot people at higher risk early in their training and to develop interventions that target these risk factors to strengthen their resilience.”
