Max Contact Hours Awarded: 6.25
Max Pharmacotherapeutic Hours Awarded: 0
Adverse childhood experiences, such as childhood abuse and neglect, have been implicated in a number of chronic health issues including ischemic heart disease, cancer, chronic lung disease, skeletal fractures and liver disease. Trauma informed care aims to create an environment that is welcoming and engaging, using the knowledge of the impact of trauma in people’s lives. Through multiple learning activities, you will demonstrate basic strategies to create a more supportive care environment – at the bedside, in the clinic, at the nurses’ station and beyond.
