Assessing Trauma History in Pregnant Patients: A Didactic Module and Role-Play for Obstetrics and Gynecology Residents

Date of Review: October, 2020

his resource introduces concepts of trauma-informed care in the obstetrics setting, and includes a variety of curriculum materials including a facilitation guide, handouts, lecture slides, and assessment tool. Appendices outline additional resources related to trauma-informed care. Though this resource is geared toward residents, coursework could be adapted for other learners and settings. Collaboration with clinical psychologists would be helpful to fully implement the curriculum, though the instructor’s guide outlines important considerations for facilitating standardized role-play activities. —Katy Wright, PhD, NCEAS
