From the Trauma Bay Through the Hospital Stay: Trauma-Informed Care for Pediatric Patients from Various Child Life Specialist Lenses
Includes a Live Event on 07/22/2020 at 1:00 PM (EDT)
Although some components of trauma-informed care are consistent no matter where an intervention occurs, others are more relevant at various points in a typical hospital stay. Using case studies, this webinar will explore the range of child life services for trauma patients throughout the hospital, including ED arrival, PICU stay, and inpatient admission. We will address how our team of child life specialists collaborates across hospital units to provide ongoing support to trauma patients during admission and provide advice and resources for successfully supporting trauma patients in your own institution.
Learning Objectives: Participants will be able to:
• Define trauma-informed care and describe its implementation in various areas of the hospital
• Explain the importance of collaboration as an essential component in continuity of care
• Understand how to utilize key components of trauma-informed care at their facilities
• Tailor interventions for trauma patients to their needs during various parts of their hospital stays
