Practices in rural South Carolina have unique needs
The novel coronavirus disease-19 (COVID-19) pandemic has altered our economy, society, and healthcare system. While this crisis has presented the U.S. healthcare delivery system with unprecedented challenges, the pandemic has also catalyzed rapid adoption of telehealth, or the entire spectrum of activities used to deliver care at a distance. Furthermore, natural disasters and pandemics like COVID-19 are known to be traumatic and those with preexisting trauma exposure and mental health conditions are often at greater risk than the general population for long-term adverse health outcomes. Therefore, application of trauma-informed principles to telehealth care is critical and timely. This training aims to provide necessary education and best practices related to the integration of trauma-informed care in technology-based health and behavioral health practices.
