For Emergency Medical Responders. Past the Pandemic (PTP): Individual Wellbeing, Connection and Support ECHO Series

This ECHO series offers emergency medical responders an opportunity to unite and reflect on stressors and experiences related to the current health care system. This series will focus on a common language used by rescue professionals to recognize and mitigate occupational stress exposure, as well as evidence-based best practices for ongoing recovery and flourishing.

The first two sessions build a foundation of common language, operational tools and exploration of how stress impacts on physical, emotional and relational health. The foundational sessions are required and will introduce language and concepts that will be woven throughout the remaining sessions. Presence is encouraged, but not required at all sessions.

This series is the newest iteration of Past the Pandemic, launched in 2020, and provides updated curriculum to capture current stressors in health care. This program is now part of a state-wide initiative, Colorado CARES, aimed at increasing health care worker retention and resiliency.

Asynchronous video modules are posted and available to view at one’s own pace for sessions that are missed. Participants will have access to a Toolkit and ongoing weekly Resource Rooms led by a mental health professional to encourage and practice a common language, support and resources.
