Join the National Council of Urban Indian Health as we dive into the crucial topic of Trauma-Informed Care. Trauma-informed care is a framework that aims to establish secure healthcare environments. When catering to American Indian and Alaskan Native communities, trauma-informed care should acknowledge the influence of historical trauma and our resilience and cultural connections to create culturally safe care.
- Discussing the historical timeline and governmental policy implications in American Indian history sheds light on their past.
- Evaluating the effects of stress and trauma on American Indian health, including epigenetic changes, reveals their unique challenges.
- Explaining the principles of trauma-informed care and its relevance to healthcare requirements of the American Indian and Alaskan Native population.
- Examining trauma-informed care within cultural safety allows for a comprehensive analysis.
