Nurses’ Views and Current Practice of Trauma-Informed Pediatric Nursing Care

Grounded in research on posttraumatic stress etiology, “trauma-informed pediatric care” integrates understanding of posttraumatic stress, and specific practices to reduce posttraumatic stress, into clinical care of ill or injured children. Across five level I or II pediatric trauma centers, 232 nurses completed a survey of knowledge, opinions, self-rated competence, and current practice with regard to trauma-informed nursing care. Participants were knowledgeable and generally held favorable opinions about trauma-informed care. The majority considered themselves moderately competent in a range of relevant skills; their recent practice showed most variability with regard to teaching patients and parents how to cope with upsetting experiences.
