Step 2 - Review Enduring CME Information

2016 MOC Part II Self-Assessment – Trauma

Research has demonstrated that young children with secure attachments to nurturing and responsive primary caregivers and communities have better outcomes as they grow and mature. Abuse, neglect and other traumatic experiences that occur within compromised environments may create potential risks for children’s attachment relationships and their ongoing development. This course will prepare the pediatric practice to provide trauma informed care in the context of pediatric medical home.

Target Audience: The target audience is pediatric healthcare providers, the majority of whom are general pediatricians and subspecialty pediatric physicians.

Objectives: Following completion of this educational activity, learners should be able to:

  1. Explain the frequency and extent of exposure to different forms of violence by children and adolescents according to developmental stage.
  2. Describe possible behavioral or emotional responses by children exposed to community violence, strategies to identify children at risk for prolonged or maladaptive reactions, and interventions that are supported by evidence.
  3. Apply the concepts of trauma-informed pediatric practice, including interviewing techniques, staff development and office policies to avoid repeat or continued trauma experienced by children previously exposed to community violence.

Needs Assessment/Gap: 

Research has demonstrated that young children with secure attachments to nurturing and responsive primary caregivers have better outcomes as they grow and mature. Abuse, neglect and other traumatic experiences that occur within compromised caregiving environments may create potential risks for children’s attachment relationships and their ongoing development. Trauma-informed care shares many principles with patient centered care. However, trauma informed care incorporates an awareness of the impact of traumatic stress on ill or injured children and families as a part of treating the medical aspects of the trauma. Trauma can be both a medical and psychological event in the eyes of children and families experiencing serious illnesses, injuries, or painful procedures. By enhancing patient centered care with trauma informed care, health care providers can reduce the impact of difficult or frightening medical events, and help children and families cope with emotional reactions to illness and injury. This activity will identify core elements of a trauma-informed pediatric care, and discuss best practices for building services and supports that strengthen children’s relationships with caregiving adults and foster resilience and well-being. Previous Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia research found that pediatric medical providers would likely embrace the opportunity for training in trauma-informed care if it were offered and that there is currently a large gap in this training being integrated into standard professional development.
