About this Course
This continuing education course provides healthcare professionals with an introduction to
- traumatic stress reactions related to injury and illness
- how to identify risk factors and signs and symptoms of emotional trauma in children
- how to address these reactions in the context of everyday pediatric care.
Using two case examples, the continuing education course applies the DEF Protocol for trauma-informed care to real nursing situations and addresses common concerns that nurses have about assessing and addressing child and parent distress.
