The medical professionals who are directly involved with an unanticipated adverse patient event are deeply affected and many times unaware of the underlying impact to themselves.  Many experience overwhelming anxiety, cannot return to work, their family lives are affected and they're reluctant to reach out for help.  These particular medical professionals are experiencing Second Victim Syndrome.  In this episode, we will talk about the help and resources that are available for our second victims and, most importantly, to let you know that you are not alone.
