AHL’s Dr. Dery Published Article in STAT
MarkAlain Dery, DO, MPH, FACOI is an Infectious disease physician and the chief innovation officer at Access Health Louisiana. Dr. Dery recently published an article detailing his disaster relief work in Ukraine and Haiti, highlighting the importance of teaching mental and physical trauma care to all healthcare providers.
While in Ukraine, Dr. Dery joined the relief effort sponsored by the Swiss Foundation for Innovation and utilized the teaching model created by Project ECHO to develop a training for providers on trauma response care. His success with the program has opened opportunities for new versions of the training to be developed.
Dr. Dery states in his article that “we were given frequent reminders that providers were experiencing the collective trauma of war, such as when our participants lost colleagues in a bombing at a rehabilitative hospital, or when we suddenly saw a decline in participation in the midst of an air raid.” Want to read more?
