The majority of primary clinicians in Oregon have not received trauma informed care training in medical school. Trauma training can fill a knowledge gap and provide associated benefits for patient care. Trauma exposure is common in children and adolescents. The National Survey of Children’s Health estimated that 22% of youths have experienced at least two adverse childhood experiences by the time they are 18 years. Adults who are exposed to traumatic events during childhood commonly seek medical services. Trauma training can increase confidence in assessing for trauma and trauma related sequelae. Without this confidence, health care practitioners hesitate to address and assess early trauma despite its known negative health effects.
