Apply for Trauma-Informed Learning Community

Thursday, January 4, 2018

Applications are being accepted for agencies interested in taking part in a learning collaborative of primary care providers to start piloting of a trauma-informed model. That model was previously developed by a Practice Transformation Team under the auspices of the National Council for Behavioral Health (NCBH)  initiative, Trauma-Informed Primary Care: Fostering Resilience and Recovery. This latest initiative builds upon an earlier NCBH Trauma-Informed Primary Care Initiative that involved several HIV agencies funded under the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program.

Applications are due January 18 for the Trauma-Informed, Resilience-Oriented Approaches Learning Community, the eighth such endeavor.

HRSA's HIV/AIDS Bureau conducted an examination of trauma and HIV in a 2015 national consultation meeting. The report, Trauma and HIV, reviewed current research on trauma treatment in HIV care, identified gaps, and "identified key areas for further research and program implementation based on the intersection of trauma treatment and improved HIV health outcomes."
