An Introduction to Creating a Trauma-Informed Culture in the Post-Acute and Long-Term Care Facility: PART 2
June 22, 2023
2 - 3 p.m. EST
Audience: All nursing facility staff
Healthcare staff have a deep intention to care for other human beings and with the principles of trauma-informed care, we can bring that intention to life. In this session, we’ll continue our exploration of TIC concepts including the difference between trauma screening and assessment, the impact of an activated nervous system, and how to integrate that knowledge into daily interactions with residents.
1. Discuss trauma-informed principles and how they apply to resident interactions.
2. Explain the impact of a nervous system response and the difference between a reaction and a response.
3. Differentiate between trauma screening and trauma assessment and why this distinction is critical.
