What is Trauma-informed Care?
The American Hospital Association’s Hospital Against Violence initiative, in collaboration with HEAL Trafficking and Jones Day, hosts this webinar to provide health care professionals an understanding of trauma-informed care and explore the intersection of trauma, resilience, and health. Clinicians from the Brigham and Women’s Hospital’s C.A.R.E. Clinic (Coordinated Approach to Resilience and Empowerment) and the BWH Fish Center for Women’s Health share ways to practice trauma-informed care and ways to measure the effectiveness of this approach. The C.A.R.E. Clinic uses a trauma-informed and patient-centered framework to assist victims of domestic and sexual violence and human trafficking.
