    The Benefits of a Trauma-Informed Approach to Practice

    The Benefits of a Trauma-Informed Approach to Practice

    PW Editorial Board member and columnist Alex McDonald, MD (family and sprots medicine, Kaiser Permanente), speaks with Erika Roshanravan, MD (family physician and medical director, CommuniCare+OLE), about trauma-informed care and the need to shift the focus in patient conversations from “What’s wrong with you?” to “What happened to you?” A trauma-informed approach to care acknowledges that healthcare organizations and care teams need a complete picture of a patient’s life situation—past and present—to provide effective healthcare services with a healing orientation. Adopting trauma-informed practices can potentially improve patient engagement, treatment adherence, and health outcomes, as well as healthcare provider and staff wellness. It can also help reduce avoidable care and excess costs for both the healthcare and social service sectors.

    How Will the 2024 Presidential Election Affect Healthcare?

    How Will the 2024 Presidential Election Affect Healthcare?

    “Healthcare is at a very delicate moment,” says Jeanne Haggerty, a lobbyist for Williams & Jensen in Washington DC. With 25 years of governmental affairs experience in Washington, she should know. Haggerty’s successful career on the Hill has included working on the Senate Finance Committee, and later, the House Energy and Commerce Committee. During this time, she built strong relationships and knowledge in a wide variety of policy areas, but her specialty is healthcare policy. Haggerty takes the time to explain the upcoming health policy issues to watch in Congress in 2024 and conjectures on what might happen to healthcare policy depending on who wins the upcoming presidential election. This discussion is bipartisan and has no political leaning. There is, however, a strong call to action for physicians interested in policy to contact the AMA or other specialist society to ensure that the voice of clinicians is heard, no matter what the topic is you are passionate about.
