Critical Incident Stress Injury (CISI) Survey
Eastern Division Patrollers, please take a moment to read the below message.
Critical incident stress injury (CISI) is a recognized occupational hazard in First Responders. Stress injury can negatively impact our mental, emotional and physical well being. CISI can occur as a result of witnessing or hearing about a tragedy, involvement in a tragedy, a fatality, an undesirable outcome, a complicated scene or from events unrelated to ski patrolling such as work and life situations. A better understanding of the incidence of CISI in ski patrollers could help direct treatment and prevention of its consequences. Most states have Critical Incident Stress Debriefing (CISD) and Management (CISM) teams that offer support to First Responders. Ski Patrollers as First Responders should have access to CISM; but it is unclear how adequate the support is for each state.
The Purpose of this survey study is to determine the incidence of Critical Incident Stress Injury (CISI) in ski patrollers in the Eastern Division of NSP and to determine if existing Critical Incident Stress Debriefing (CISD) and Management (CISM) teams offer adequate support to NSP Eastern Division ski patrollers. Results of this study will be used to develop Ski Patrol Refresher modules on CISI stress injury and to better identify resources to proactively prevent its consequences.
All responses from this study will be completely anonymous. There will be no way to personally identify any of the responders. All results will be displayed as grouped data.
