Sexual Violence and Trauma-Informed Patient Care
February 21, 2018 @ 3:00 pm - 4:15 pm
Part II of Prehealth Advising’s CULTURALLY COMPETENT PATIENT CARE series is taking place 2/21/18 3:00-4:15PM in E19-202. This event is open to the entire MIT community.
The aim is to address the prevalence and impacts of sexual violence and talk about what we can do to work towards health care that is more trauma-informed and survivor-centered. The session will include a panel and discussion on the topic of trauma-informed practices in health care, especially when delivering patient care to survivors of sexual violence. With statistics about sexual violence as they are – 1 in 3 women globally, 1 in 6 men in the US, and 64% of trans people, healthcare must address this problem. Recognizing that survivorship is always in the room, another learning objective pertains to how survivors exist in the healthcare arena as physicians, staff, nurses, and patients; therefore we plan to explore how trauma-informed practices can be implemented in caregiver-patient interaction but also among health care professionals and staff. The ideas we’ll address are not limited to health care; incorporating trauma-informed practices is important when working in any field.
