Trauma Informed Care for Nurse Practitioners

Dec 15, 2020

Trauma-informed care sounds like a hard-to-learn, difficult and stressful topic (also reclaimed as “healing-centered care” to de-center trauma in some places, which feels a lot friendlier).

But it’s really accessible. It’s a paradigm of practice you’re likely already doing a lot of in your day-to-day practice, but possibly being more aware of it can help you be more intentional about it.

It centers around the ways that trauma impacts patient care, and the specific ways we can interact with our patients to avoid re-triggering trauma.

I’m sharing about this topic because 1) it’s important, but 2) because even caring, well-intentioned providers can cause harm if they’re uninformed.

It makes a HUGE difference to patients to practice this way!
