Ample evidence shows that adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) and trauma in adulthood may lead to poor health outcomes, such as cardiovascular disease and other chronic diseases. These traumas may also affect a person’s inclination to seek care and participate in plans of care. As a provider, it is important to consider this history and ensure the psychological and physical safety of these affected individuals. Join us to learn proven strategies to help you practice trauma-informed care, including how to recognize trauma and offer effective interventions to help patients dealing with these issues.
