Abstract
<p>The effects of a traumatic experience impact every aspect of an individual’s health. Specifically for children and adolescents, those impacts can be even more severe, especially for those without access to the resources and support necessary to engage in the healing process. Implementing trauma-informed care in pediatric primary care settings allows medical providers to address trauma and its array of physiological and psychological symptoms early and effectively. Research indicates this can be accomplished by facilitating conversations, building relationships, and initiating referrals to mental health services. Trauma-informed care can be implemented in strategic and cost-effective manners among both healthcare providers and their office staff, achieving a cohesive and integrated approach to care. Ultimately, the support provided through trauma-informed care improves long-term health outcomes for patients and reduces the need for high-cost and/or long-term interventions.</p>
