Alberta’s firefighters, police officers, paramedics, sheriffs, corrections officers and emergency health care workers often deal with stressful, dangerous and traumatic situations. This stress has a negative impact on first responders and emergency health care workers. They often experience post-traumatic stress injuries (PTSI) at significantly higher rates than the general population.
The applied research grant recipients must meet these requirements:
- Applicant must be affiliated with a Canadian-based organization.
- The research project must generate evidence on prevention or intervention for PTSI in first responders and emergency health care workers.
