TRAUMA RISING: WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT TRAUMA TO PROVIDE AGE FRIENDLY CARE

  • Date:
  • Time: 1:30pm - 2:30pm
  • Track: Clinical Practice
  • CME/CE: 1.0

Co-Moderators: Laura M. Iglesias Lino, MD; Erin Leahy, MD & Rebecca Starr, MD, AGSF
In Geriatrics, we frequently encounter older adults who have unresolved trauma, and as a result, we may witness trauma reemerge, especially in the context of major health events, life changes, loss of a spouse, loss of independence and elder abuse. It is crucial that we are trained to identify and respond to trauma so that we may transform geriatrics into a trauma-informed specialty and better serve our patients. Learning Objectives: (1) define trauma - both PTSD and complex trauma - and the lifelong health impacts of trauma; (2) recognize the special considerations of trauma for BIPOC and other minority populations; (3) identify triggers for trauma reemergence in older adults; and (4) integrate the principles of trauma informed care into clinical practice.
