Trauma survivors have unique care needs that must be incorporated into the plan of care in order to attain or maintain the resident's highest level of health and well-being. The use of trauma-informed care requires staff to understand types of traumatic experiences and their impact on residents, recognition of post-traumatic stress disorder, or PTSD, that some trauma survivors may experience, triggers residents may have, and care strategies that can eliminate these triggers and prevent re-traumatization. This course illustrates the incorporation of trauma-informed care into the person-centered, culturally competent plan of care in long-term care facilities.
