Trauma-Informed Care for Nursing Home Staff

SSD Online Training by Jody Giac

Who should take this course?

This course is required for all nursing home employees.

Why should I take this course?

  • First, it is mandated. Mega Rule 3 requires that all nursing home staff complete a trauma-informed care course. This is to ensure that residents who are trauma survivors receive culturally competent, trauma-informed care in accordance with professional standards of practice.
  • Second, and more importantly, knowing about trauma and how to mitigate it will help you better understand residents’ behavior and how to provide them with the care they need. Trauma is a serious issue that affects more than half the population of the United States. Knowing how to identify a trauma survivor and learn about their potential triggers will help you avoid re-traumatizing them.
