When Healthcare Causes Trauma

Healthcare is supposed to be healing, but in reality, a medical experience, such as the diagnosis of an illness or a hospital stay, can be very traumatising. Consultant psychiatrist and geriatric psychiatrist Dr Bharathi Vengadasalam explains how medically-induced PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) is becoming a greater concern, especially as we are living longer with more chronic medical conditions.
