Trauma-Informed Care

About This Webinar

Trauma is highly prevalent, and its effects can impact a person at any time during their lifespan. It may present itself in various forms such as mental health, substance use, or physical health conditions. In response to the pervasiveness of trauma, as of November 2019 as part of the Phase III Requirements of Participation, Long-Term and Post-Acute Care (LTPAC) organizations are required to have a Trauma-Informed Care (TIC) plan in place.

Trauma-Informed Care (TIC) is an organizational structure and treatment framework that involves understanding, recognizing, and responding to the effects of all types of trauma. TIC emphasizes physical, psychological, and emotional safety for staff, families, and residents. It helps survivors of trauma rebuild a sense of confidence, control, and empowerment.

Not only is trauma widespread with residents and their families, but it impacts care providers as well. In this session, we will take a deeper look at how applying the TIC Framework to care providers can help to address compassion fatigue among nurses, as well as improve the mental health of staff.

Watch this webinar to:

  • Understand the Requirements of Participation for Trauma-Informed Care, and how this impacts LTPAC organizations
  • Recognize the signs of compassion fatigue among care staff
  • Learn how a Trauma-Informed Care Framework can be applied to care providers
