Trauma can cause visible, often profound physical injuries for patients. The emotional and social drain that families and health care providers experience can also be life-altering. REBUILD is a program designed by a level 1 trauma center that incorporates former patients and their families in a support group to aid previous and new patients, their families, and care providers by sharing mutual experiences and learning from each other. Health care providers have found that participating in the program has been personally gratifying and professionally beneficial by preventing burn-out.
