Every employee delivering quality care or services to residents in Long Term Care should have training and competency skills in the area of Trauma Informed Care. The CMS requirement addresses so much more than PTSD. This workshop will address aspects of trauma informed care as it relates to the CMS requirements: physical trauma, mental/emotional/psychosocial trauma PLUS documentation, care planning as well as training issues. There will be discussions about appropriate assessments and development of interview skills for residents with a history of trauma, the descriptions of PTSD & how it relates to trauma informed care. The sessions will be presented by Linda Farrar, RN, LNHA. This training is essential for Nurses, Administrators and Social Services.
