Description

Seeking men and women who have been hospitalized for a traumatic event for a study to improve hospital care and prevent post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

We are studying to better understand how to better treat trauma and prevent and treat post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Volunteers will answer questionnaires, provide blood and spit samples and wear a wrist monitor to measure heart rate.

What we're hoping for

Evaluate how people who experience trauma recover over time to provide better care to people receiving care in the hospital for a trauma in the future and prevent post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
