Integrating Trauma-Informed Care Into Family Medicine Residency & the Practice of Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment

05-06-2021 14:28

This session will discuss ideas and experiences in integrating trauma-informed care into family medicine residency training. It will begin with an overview of the literature on the emerging field of trauma-informed care within primary care, highlighting the unique role family physicians can play in supporting the health and wellness of individuals affected by trauma. Misconceptions surrounding the efficacy of implementing universal trauma-precautions and trauma-screening will be explored, emphasizing the organizational and clinical changes required to result in improved health outcomes. In recognition of the recent creation of a single accreditation system for graduate medical education, trauma-informed care will also be discussed as it relates to the practice of osteopathic manipulative treatment. This roundtable discussion's overarching goal is to advocate for the practical incorporation of trauma education into graduate medical education as a way to integrate trauma competencies early into clinical practice to better serve the healthcare needs of patients affected by trauma.

Upon completion of this session, participants should be able to:

  1. Describe the unique role family physicians can play in supporting the health and wellness of patients affected by trauma.
  2. Articulate the organizational and clinical changes required for the implementation of universal trauma-precautions and trauma-screening to result in improved health outcomes.
  3. Discuss trauma-informed care as it relates to the practice of osteopathic manipulative treatment.
