Many of our patients and colleagues have experienced trauma in their lifetimes that they bring with them to healthcare settings. How do we meet them where they are while providing the best care possible for their individual needs? Trauma informed care, an approach to engaging individuals and families with trauma histories that recognizes the long term and significant effects of trauma on human development and the presence of trauma symptoms, is an important element to the answer. This session will define trauma and Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs); explain why it is important to address trauma; explore how trauma leads to many outcomes; and illustrate what a trauma-informed system of care is and how it will help others.
