ETS Psychosocial support set version 4

The ETS psychosocial support training material is developed in order to practice coordination and psychological first aid for situations in everyday life as well as major incidents. The material was developed in 2013 and is used by county councils and municipalities in several countries. There is from September 2019, a new updated Psychosocial support set - version 4 available in English.

The ETS Psychosocial support set can be used:

  • to train psychosocial support persons in psychological first aid for psychosocial support
  • to train in assessing what follow-up a survivor requires
  • to train in organising psychological first aid for a large number of survivors
  • to practice and evaluate the abilities of psychosocial support organisations within the health care services

The material consists of survivors of both genders, in various ages, family circumstances and life situations, so as to reflect a normal population of survivors of a major incident. They have been designed to reflect reactions to a potentially traumatic event where the survivors is not physically injured but has been exposed to this. The survivors have different reactions and different coping abilities. This demands individual assessment of the psychological first aid and individual assessment of the follow-up that is needed.

Stickers are included to be used to visualise actions that can be taken during psychological first aid. 

News in version 4:

  • New design of the survivor symbols and conversation cards
  • More staff symbols
  • New signs
  • New sticker for child activity
  • Manual for ETS Psychosocial support training set
  • Updated Power Point presentation

All the figurant cards are based on the data in the Emergo Train System version 4 trauma bank and each figurant card corresponds to a magnetic symbol. This makes it possible to continue an exercise from a pre-hospital exercise using figurants, to an in-hospital setting using magnetic patients and whiteboards. Simply transfer the measures made on the figurant to the magnetic patient by adding stickers on the patient symbol! Patient outcome can then be evaluated all the way from incident site in to hospital.

The figurant cards are available in a 50 set (trauma patient 1-50) and 100 set (trauma patient 1-100) and includes strings to attach the card around the neck of the figurants.

Those patients are not from the incident, they arrive with an ambulance or is coming from another department in the hospital. All trigger patients starts with a T. There is a total of 50 trigger patients. The trigger patients can be used as injects during an exercise. For example if the instructors want to add extra workload toa hospital, they can add trigger patients arriving in an ambulance.

Uninjured/psychological shock victim bank version 4

During a pre-hospital scenario with an incident, you might want to include victims that don’t have any physical injuries and/or is in psychological shock.

However they require resources in form of, for example, transportation.

A special uninjured/psychological shock victim bank is available to use together with, for example, the trauma victim bank.

The front side and back side of the patient is the same design as on the trauma victims.
