Two Members of Missouri Baptist Sullivan Hospital’s Emergency Medicine Team  Attended Three-Day Critical Incident Stress Management Course

Two members of Missouri Baptist Sullivan Hospital’s (MBSH) emergency medicine team – Aaron Tuner, NREMT-P, FP-C, emergency services manager at MBSH, and Megan Branson, emergency department manager at MBSH – recently attended a three-day ‘Basic Peer’ Critical Incident Stress Management (CISM) course. They were also joined by two members of the Sullivan Police Department.

“We were fortunate to be able to attend this intensive three-day training session, which provided mentorship and resources on how to better manage and balance the stresses that come with our jobs,” said Turner. “First responders are especially at high-risk due to stressors in this current era of COVID and cultural turmoil. Having this type of training helps us recognize certain risk factors and proactively provide intervention strategies to protect the overall health of our first responders as well as our communities.”

The three-day CISM course focuses on the physical, mental, relational, spiritual, financial, and emotional health of first responders, helping them build resiliency so they can foster healthy professional and personal lives. These categories of wellness vitally impact their overall job performance, so keeping them healthy provides safety, quality care and protection of our greater communities. The Warrior’s Rest Foundation and the Missouri Department of Public Safety (DPS) partnered to provide this course as well as other wellness and stress management courses for first responders in Missouri. The training tuition was paid by the Missouri DPS and provided at no cost to attendees.
