Post-Assignment Care

Post-assignment care for News Teams

We understand the need for careful, timely and sensitive post-assignment medical care for news gathering staff working abroad. Sometimes the need for medical care may be highlighted by a clearly identifiable incident, traumatic event, or exposure to a hazard or disease risk. Sometimes assignments merge from one to the next – the exposure is continuous, and it never really clear whether care needs to be “post-assignment” – or “pre” the next one.

We are always ready to help in a crisis, but our preferred approach is to put in place a system of ongoing care, maintaining an open channel of communication. Our aim is to be immediately accessible whenever needed, and already known and trusted by your staff.

The medical equivalent of a debriefing session is a key component of ongoing healthcare for working journalists following an assignment abroad, especially if it has been long, risky or stressful. It is important not to underestimate the health issues that can arise from this kind of work, and to ensure there is a clear process for ensuring that no problems slip through the net.

This health debriefing session provides an opportunity to:

  • screen for infectious diseases that may have been picked up, or to document a clean bill of health
  • review any specific health concerns
  • complete any vaccination courses that may have been started
  • discuss health problems arising from stress, personal problems, depression, lifestyle issues, or PTSD
  • investigate any occupational health issues or hazardous exposures that may have taken place while abroad
  • establish a supportive relationship with experienced, knowledgeable doctors and nurses, with a proven track record of being able to help.
