Trauma-Informed Training for Medical (Non-Mental Health) Providers for Military and Veterans Patients

Military service members and veterans often struggle with seeking help and addressing healthcare-related issues and ailments. Usually, the trauma that they face expands beyond that of combat-related trauma that frequently plays significant role in service members and veterans seeking health care. Trauma-informed care is an approach that can be implemented in healthcare settings to aid in improving healthcare provider/patient relationships, better-assessing healthcare needs, understanding potential barriers to treatment, and improving healthcare recommendation follow-through and outcomes. It becomes vital that, when working with service members and veterans, the impact of trauma is often enhanced during the time of service and that this population stands as the most significant risk of complex trauma.

Thus, to provide the highest quality of care, it becomes vital that the whole health of the service members and veterans is considered. Trauma-informed care fosters and atmosphere of respect towards service members and veterans, acknowledging all potential traumas they have experienced and how this has impacted healthcare thus far. One cannot provide impactful treatment for future outcomes without understanding and giving dignity and worth to the individual about the traumatic experiences they have endured in their past.

  1. Learning Objective One: Individuals will understand trauma-informed care and why this approach can impact the medical field.
