COVID-19 specific Psychological First Aid (PFA) eLearning module on Turas

The National Trauma Training team has been focussing on collating and developing psychological resources in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. A significant part of this work has been developing a COVID-19 specific Psychological First Aid (PFA) eLearning module on Turas. PFA is based on a set of principles that we know help people to cope with and recover from ongoing situations like those arising from COVID-19. The module is designed to teach the principles of PFA to anyone who is delivering health or social care in order to allow them to effectively deliver PFA throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. The other resources provided on the website link above provide links to helpful documents and other webpages which focus on self-care, resilience and wellbeing in healthcare staff. This website will continue to be updated.
