Trauma-Informed Care On-Demand Workshop
Trauma-Informed Care (TIC) is a federal regulatory requirement, but it is also an approach to care that requires specific staff competency as well as a system of care delivery to achieve the intent of the regulation and provide the necessary support to care for residents who may suffer from trauma. Developed in partnership with AHCA, this certificate program is designed to provide education that will assist facility leaders in implementing TIC in their facility with staff who are appropriately trained and competent to care for residents who are at risk for re-traumatization.
Following this on-demand workshop, you will be able to:
- Define Trauma-Informed Care and identify its six key principles
- Coordinate the IDT to design a process that supports collaboration for Trauma-Informed Care
- Identify the necessary areas to implement Trauma-Informed Care
This course was developed in partnership with AHCA.
