American Psychiatric Nurse Association's 34th annual conference will be held online due to COVID-19.

BH WELL's very own Dr. Zim Okoli and Dr. Amanda Lykins will present their research "Post-Traumatic Growth Among Nurses: What are Influencing Factors?" on Friday October 2nd 12:40 PM EST - 1:25 PM EST.

Examining posttraumatic growth (PTG) can yield insight to constructively understand and approach trauma among nurses. Data was analyzed from 299 nursing staff on traumatic experiences and resulting PTG. Work-place trauma resulted in the lowest PTG scores among other trauma experiences. Site-specific interventions to support PTG among nurses should be explored.
