IWK Trauma Informed Care Launched
We know that many patients, families and staff experience traumatic events. Trauma can be defined as anything that results from experiences that may overwhelm an individual’s capacity to cope with a variety of negative instances, such as abuse and neglect, family conflict, poverty, having a life-threatening illness, undergoing repeated and/or painful medical interventions, accidents, witnessing acts of violence, experiencing war, intergenerational events and grief and loss.
Being trauma informed is about creating safety and trustworthiness through our health care practices, our physical and emotional environments and social interactions with clients, families and staff.
