CAFP is proud to announce a new Peer-to-Peer Learning Initiative, Family Medicine Initiative on Trauma-Informed Care (FIT).
Funded by the Office of the California Surgeon General and the Department of Health Care Services, this initiative is designed to raise our awareness about Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs).
With our longitudinal patient relationships, family physicians have a unique opportunity to make a lasting healthcare impact by thoughtfully identifying cumulative adversity as a root cause to some of our patients’ most persistent and debilitating healthcare challenges.
Over the next year, CAFP will host a series of regionally-based, peer-to-peer learning workshops. Each workshop will consist of two sessions, conducted via Zoom.
We are fortunate to have a stellar Expert Advisory Panel steering this important project:
Our team has been meeting since October to clarify the workshop objectives, build a learning design, and insure the quality of the experience for physicians.
Check out the ACEsAware website to learn more about adverse childhood experiences, screening tools, and their online provider training (beginning July 1, 2020, Medi-Cal providers must attest to completing a certified core ACE training on the DHCS website in order to be reimbursed for ACE screenings).
The calendar of FIT workshops can be found on the CAFP website. If you have questions or would like to learn more about FIT, please contact Robin Heyden.
