Key Insights into a Trauma-Informed Approach to Care (Live Webinar)
We all serve patients that have experienced trauma and toxic stress. Many times, these are the more complex patients with intractable issues. These challenges can cause us to question our effectiveness as physicians, increase patient dissatisfaction, increase provider stress, and decrease wellbeing for staff. All of our patients are better served by understanding that past experiences may be at the root of current health issues. Join your peers and three leading experts, to learn more about trauma-informed care principles that can enhance the physician-patient alliance, make your practice of medicine more effective, and support the well-being of your staff.
At the end of this session, learners should be able to:
- Describe the key principles of trauma-informed care (TIC)
- List ways to enhance the physician-patient alliance
- Answer frequently asked questions about supporting your colleagues and staff in a trauma-informed practice
This activity is designed for family medicine physicians, and other primary care team members.
