"Trauma-Informed Care: Pediatric Intensive Care Nurses at the Root of Children's Safety and Trust" (March) - Journal Club
This article will increase awareness of the potential trauma and its lasting effects children admitted to an ICU may experience. Patients with previous trauma are at risk for retraumatization during a hospitalization that includes time in an ICU (PICU). Bedside nurses who are aware of this risk and understand how to support the patient and family by creating a supportive environment will assist in improving physical and mental well-being. Nurses will be aware of how to incorporate the six principles of trauma-informed care when working with patients and families. Implementing these interventions help decrease unnecessary stressors and provide a supportive environment to patients and families during an ICU admission.
