FOSTERING RESILIENCE AND RECOVERY: A Change Package for Advancing Trauma-Informed Primary Care
To test the efficacy of the Change Package, the National Council for Mental Wellbeing, in partnership with Iteration Evaluation, conducted a 16-month pilot program with seven Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) across the country. To ensure the Change Package was nationally applicable, selected sites were diverse in readiness for implementation, geographic location and setting, center size and patient population demographics. Sites received training on a range of topics via consultation with a dedicated practice coach, regular group webinars, and a series of in-person meetings.
Highlights of specific lessons learned through this initiative appear throughout the Change Package as provider tips and lessons from pilot participants.
