We are proud to announce CAFP’s 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 ACEsAware Program, this initiative is designed to raise 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 organize a series of regionally-based peer-to-peer learning sessions. During these online sessions, facilitators will introduce ACEs screening rationale and methods, followed by peer-to-peer discussion groups on best practices, overcoming barriers to care, and practice approaches to improve trauma-informed care.
Come to our kick-off session on Saturday, November 14th, at 1:00 PM during the 2020 Family Medicine Clinical Forum to find out more or contact Jerri Davis, firstname.lastname@example.org, or Robin Heyden, email@example.com.
