BEST services provide staff at the OSU Wexner Medical Center time to debrief and defuse as well as to grieve losses after a traumatic situation. Aftercare and follow-up are critical after experiencing a difficult event or loss.
“In the past, employees have been afraid to talk about their experiences with provider stress, burnout and vicarious trauma- they didn't’t want to appear weak. But we can no longer ignore these critical concerns, which affect the health and well-being of our staff every day.”
