Keys to providing quality care and achieving positive clinical outcomes
The experience of trauma has widespread impact on the lives of those we serve. Trauma can lead to or exacerbate mental illness, substance use, and physical health conditions. In a truly integrated, whole health system of care, effective treatment must involve addressing the impact of trauma.
Unfortunately, despite our best efforts, the very services and systems designed to help people become healthy can be retraumatizing. Our staff can also be negatively impacted by doing the work.
Trauma-Informed Care is how we can address these concerns and position our organizations to meet the demands of our ever changing healthcare field.
