The Psychological Effect of Trauma on Physicians (Podcast)
August 10, 2016
Auto accidents are the 9th most common cause of death worldwide, and are poised to move into the top 5 by 2030. Dr. James Zender, a PhD clinical and forensic psychologist with over 30 years trauma experience, the last 15 of which he specialized in auto accident trauma treatment and care, joined our podcast to discuss the epidemic of auto accidents and the psychological effect of trauma on healthcare professionals. This is an especially relevant topic for residents who are just beginning their medical careers, since the trauma they encounter in hospital emergency rooms can have a disastrous impact on their mental health if proper support structures are not in place.
