From Trauma to Healing: For Our Patients, Our Communities, and Ourselves: Translation to Practice
When crafting its goal to prioritize justice through diversity, equity, and inclusion (JEDI) in the triennial strategic plan, the CAFP specified that this work would be done through a trauma-informed lens. While the relationship between trauma and inequity is well-recognized, the consideration of trauma in JEDI work is groundbreaking and visionary in medicine. Family medicine’s expansive view of what is important to health naturally aligns our specialty with the principles of being trauma-informed. In this session, you will learn how a trauma-informed lens can help address the root causes of our patients’ poor health and empower family physicians to provide even more engaging care that satisfies patients and our own professional aspirations.
The faculty of the CAFP’s Family Medicine Initiative on Trauma-Informed Care (CAFP FIT) will dive deep into why a trauma-informed lens is an essential tool for addressing health disparities in our patients. They will talk about how trauma-informed care improves the health of not only our patients and our communities, but how it helps health care to be a healing place for patients, staff, and family physicians.
