Advancing Health Equity through Trauma-Informed Primary Care is a two-year project that began in July 2021 and is funded through URMC’s Safety-Net and Program Support Office. Led by AHP and the AHP/URMC Care Management Organization, the project aims to advance health equity by providing the network with the tools and resources needed to accelerate practice transformation so that patients consistently experience the principles of Trauma-Informed Care (safe, trustworthy, collaborative, empowering, and supportive of choice).
Five pilot practices are engaged in this project which involves working with a consultation team from Coordinated Care Services, Inc. (CCSI), a Rochester-based organization with regional expertise in helping large systems become trauma-informed. The five practices (three pediatric, one Internal Medicine, and one Family Medicine/FQHC) recently completed baseline data collection and are currently developing trauma-informed action plans to implement in their offices.
More information will be forthcoming as the project evolves. Trauma-informed resources will be available to our full network as they become available. Please contact Daryl Sharp via email or Dr. L J Shipley via email if you have questions or want more information.
