Online Stigma, Bias, and Trauma-Informed Care Training
Description: In partnership with the Brigham & Women's Hospital CARE (Coordinated Approach to Resilience and Empowerment) Clinic, PNQIN is proud to offer online stigma, bias, and trauma-informed care training. This team-focused training is led by Dr. Annie Lewis-O'Connor and is intended for maternal and neonatal health care and service providers. The training content is centered on patients experiencing Substance or Opioid Use Disorder (SUD/OUD) and Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS).
Training topics include: Trauma, Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), unconscious bias and stigma, structural racism, and the six principles of trauma-informed care.
Understand the roles of stigma, bias, and trauma-informed care and resilience on disparities in health and birth outcomes specifically:
Pain management for pregnant and postpartum patients experiencing OUD
Discharge and prescription practices for obstetric patients
OUD treatment bias for pre- and postpartum patients
Note: This training was initially designed to be interactive and delivered in a group setting. We encourage you to gather a group from your hospital to watch the 1 hour 15 minute training recording, then debrief and discuss together for 45 minutes. Alternatively, your team members could watch the recording individually and schedule time to have a discussion as a group.
