Implementation of Trauma-Informed Care (TIC) in a Pediatric or Family Practice setting is an emerging field of study. A “Gold Standard” has yet to be established, as this is an emerging practice. There is a growing base of evidence and a need to explore research to establish best practice. The project explores emerging practices and highlights the need to customize the approach to match the resource of the practice and the needs of the patient population. This poster provides highlights of this project including our TIC guide, assessment of practices, choosing a population, screening schedules, selecting a tool(s) tool for screening, QI methods for implementation and reflective self-care practices for systems and individuals to address the secondary trauma that can be associated with this work.
- Identify methods of selecting a screening schedule and population
- Identify which screening tool(s) to use
- Increase provider skills in identifying treating and partnering with external community resources to address adverse childhood experiences in their practice setting Utilizing QI methods
