Event Information

Description:

As PAs move towards patient-centered care, we must consider biopsychosocial approaches to improve patient outcomes. Exposure to adverse events in childhood has been shown to cause long-term health effects into adulthood. Nearly 70% of the population has lived through at least one adverse event in their childhood, and over 15% have lived through 4 or more. Because of the widespread impact of trauma on patients, medical organizations have developed policies to encourage trauma-informed care. By asking, “What have you been through,” PAs can adjust their perspective and provide trauma-informed patient-centered care.   

Learning Objectives:

At the conclusion of this session, participants should be able to:
⦁ Describe adverse childhood events and their effects on a patient’s health
⦁ Recognize the signs and symptoms of trauma
⦁ Learn skills and techniques of trauma-informed care to integrate into their practice
