DOT
A critical incident can be any traumatic or life-threatening event. These events can evoke strong emotional responses from healthcare workers, some of which can evolve into severe stress and reactions of grief. The Critical Incident Stress Debriefing (CISD) process is a model designed to mitigate the impact of traumatic events on healthcare staff, facilitate their return to normal day-to-day functioning, and prevent pathological responses to trauma that is an inherent part of the profession.
