In January 2020, the California Department of Health Care Services (DHCS), in partnership with the California Office of the Surgeon General, created a first-in-the-nation statewide effort to screen patients for trauma and the increased likelihood of associated health conditions due to toxic stress and adverse childhood experiences (ACEs).
The ACEs Aware initiative is hosting a live, one-hour webinar on Wednesday, September 30 at 12:00 p.m. to provide strategies, promising practices and resources to support health care providers and clinical leadership as they assess their organizational readiness and build workforce resilience to successfully integrate ACEs screening into clinical practice.
Participants can also expect to learn:
- Define workforce resilience and trauma-informed principles and review resources and tools, including tips for reducing staff stress and burnout.
- Share examples and lessons learned about assessing staff readiness and building infrastructure.
- Offer practical tips on how to prepare to successfully screen for ACEs and toxic stress, provide evidence-based interventions, and implement trauma-informed care.
Register for this free webinar today, and explore the full series designed to help providers integrate ACEs screening and response into their clinic and workflows.
Materials will be posted after the event at: acesaware.org/events. Please email questions and comments to firstname.lastname@example.org.
