Trauma-Informed Care for Healthcare Professionals
Trauma-Informed Care for Healthcare Professionals

Healthcare professionals are increasingly recognizing the long-term effects of trauma on health. Experiencing trauma can affect an individual’s attitudes toward medical care. It is critical that healthcare professionals understand the relationship between trauma, adversity, and health as well as provide clinical environments that do not further traumatize patients. Trauma-informed care (TIC) has the potential to increase patient engagement in treatment and preventive care, decrease staff turnover, increase staff’s ability to provide patient-centered care, improve patients’ experience of care and health outcomes, and promote genuine healing.
