"New Horizons in Medical Education: Developing Competence and Exploring Teaching Models in Trauma-Informed Care"

Medical education has begun to embrace the concept of trauma-informed care yet there are no universal standards for competence and curriculum in teaching students about caring for patients who have experienced trauma, especially adults. The Trauma-Informed Healthcare Education and Research (TIHCER) collaborative will describe our preliminary work on the development of competencies in trauma-informed care for medical education. Attendees will learn about several current training models and then participate in demonstrations of these models.

Learning Objectives:
-Describe the current status of developing a competency model in TIC medical education.
-Explore different types of TIC training models.
-Identify 2 or 3 strengths and weaknesses of the training models.
-Contrast 2 or 3 approaches or skill sets that can be adapted to your specific settings.
