Trauma-informed care (TIC) is a body of research that informs best practices in working with people who have experienced trauma that may affect their daily lives and their ability to engage in health care.

It is also an organizational framework of culture change that realizes the impact of trauma and how it can affect staff, recognizes the signs of trauma, initiates a system that can respond to trauma, and resists re-traumatization.

The effort to develop the program and trainers within our health system is a collaboration among:

  • OHSU Health IDS
  • OHSU Center for Diversity and Inclusion
  • OHSU Office of Primary Care and Population Health
  • OHSU Occupational Health’s Trauma-informed Care Program
  • Trauma Informed Oregon
