Interprofessional Collaboration to Optimize Trauma-Informed Care in Pediatric Forensics

Interprofessional Collaboration to Optimize Trauma-Informed Care in Pediatric Forensics ABSTRACT There are many challenges in providing trauma-informed healthcare to pediatric victims of sexual abuse and their families. We address this through collaborative interprofessional efforts within our hospital facility, located in a Midwestern adult Level 1 and pediatric trauma center. Our sexual assault nurse examiner team is composed of eight nurses and provides 24/7 coverage. The child abuse team located in our hospital includes one board-certified child abuse pediatrician, one certified pediatric nurse practitioner, and a licensed clinical social worker. The application of trauma-informed care using case scenarios involving both teams is described in this article. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Forensic Nursing Wolters Kluwer Health

Our sexual assault nurse examiner team is composed of eight nurses and provides 24/7 coverage. The child abuse team located in our hospital includes one board-certified child abuse pediatrician, one certified pediatric nurse practitioner, and a licensed clinical social worker. The application of trauma-informed care using case scenarios involving both teams is described in this article.
