Abstract

This brief from the Center for Health Care Strategies outlines practical recommendations for health care organizations that would like to become more trauma informed. Using data from the pilot study sites of the Advancing Trauma-Informed Care national initiative, this brief offers a starting point for health care organizations to generate buy-in for trauma-informed care, educate staff about secondary traumatic stress, improve hiring practices, and enhance the physical, social, and emotional environments for patients with histories of trauma.
