Session Time and Location

The live session is complete.

Target Audience

This course is designed for pharmacists, nurse practitioners or other health care professionals involved in the comprehensive medication management of psychiatric and/or neurological patients.

Session Summary

Given the high prevalence of trauma exposure, it is important for clinical pharmacists to understand the complex interactions between trauma, substance use, mental health, and a range of medical conditions in order to provide effective patient care. While trauma-informed care models are often incorporated into other disciplines, pharmacists are infrequently provided with training in this area. This presentation will inform the audience regarding the impact of trauma on health outcomes and provide a framework for applying trauma-informed approaches to improve patient care.
