      Second Victims Train-the-Trainer Workshop

      CPS supports the Second Victim Program as another component on the path to culture improvement. While we often focus on the impact on family members of patients experiencing an adverse event, the care of our providers following an event is equally important. About Second VictimsMost health care providers adjust well to the multitude of demands encountered during an unexpected or traumatic clinical event. Providers often have strong emotional defenses that carry them through and let them “get the job done.” Yet sometimes the emotional aftershock (or stress reaction) can be difficult. Signs and symptoms of this emotional aftershock may last a few days, a few weeks, a few months, or longer. Who is a Second Victim?Second victims are “healthcare providers who are involved in an unanticipated adverse patient event, medical error and/or a patient related injury and become victimized in the sense that the provider is traumatized by the event.” The second victim phenomenon can occur to any healthcare provider, in any organization, for example, hospitals, EMS, LTC, home health & hospice, pharmacies, medical offices and physicians, ASCs, etc. Frequently, Second Victims… Feel personally responsible for the unexpected patient outcomes Feel as though they have failed the patient Second-guess their clinical skills Second-guess their knowledge base Second Victim Fast Facts Each second victim (even those involved in the same event) will have unique experiences and needs Regardless of job title, providers respond in predictable manners.The six stages of second victim recovery explain how the second victim is impacted by the clinical event.
