Working With Patients: Test your Skills

Test your knowledge.
Sharpen your skills.
Working with patients with PTSD is an active process. Now is the time to test your newfound knowledge.

Unlike the previous simulations, these next three take you through all three stages of the PTSD Toolkit from start to end. As before, you will be tasked to select the response that best leads a patient towards a helpful referral.

To start your test, please download the free app at ITunes or Google Play on a mobile device such as smartphone and tablet computer.

Your performance will be actively scored throughout the simulation. Score above % on each simulation to qualify for taking exit survey.
