Understanding Trauma-Informed Practice and Engagement [WEBINAR]

In this webinar, presented by Healthcare Excellence Canada and the Canadian Institute for Health Information, featured speakers with lived experience of receiving, providing and leading care discuss the importance of trauma-informed practice and how to implement this in health systems. This virtual learning event focused on:

  • How structures of inequity, privilege and oppression amplify and re-create trauma by prioritizing the needs of specific groups (i.e. white, able-bodied, cis-gender, non-Indigenous)
  • Intergenerational and historical trauma and its effects in the context of engaging with those with lived experience of the health system
  • The role of the healthcare system in inducing or perpetuating trauma among those who have past experiences of trauma
