Embedding Trauma-Informed Care in Service Delivery

This event will examine how organisations can embed trauma-informed care and practice into services to ensure that staff have the necessary knowledge and skills to provide effective evidence-based services.

The experience and impact of trauma is often hidden

Those with experience of trauma are often in need of the most support, yet often they can be the hardest to reach and the most unlikely to engage effectively with services.

Last year, NHS Education for Scotland were commissioned by the Scottish Government to develop the National Trauma Training Framework with the overarching goal of supporting the delivery of training for those who have contact with survivors of trauma. The Scottish Government will invest £1.35m into this initiative, supported by NHS Education for Scotland and other partners.

A workforce that can identify where an individual is affected by trauma and adapt practice accordingly will minimise distress and maximise trust. The importance of this is two-fold - effectively supporting recovery through relationship building and minimising the barriers to receiving care, support and intervention, and, above all, reducing the risk of re-traumatisation.

Join Holyrood on 23 January as we examine how you can support the development of your workforce in both recognising existing skills and knowledge and scrutinise how to make informed decisions through effective training.
