Pediatric Adversity and Early Brain Development: A toolkit for the integration of SDOH into curricula

Date of Review: May, 2019

This resource is aimed at increasing the competency of nursing students to address adversity in their patients by increasing knowledge of the effects of poverty and other stressors and interventions to mitigate these effects, as well as building skills in trauma informed care and advocacy. The curriculum consists of 4 modules which are estimated to take a total of 8-10 hours of work. The modules include pre-work readings and interactive tasks, presentations or power point slides as well as non reflective and reflective papers to be completed. It is well thought out, up to date and flexible; suggestions are given as to how one could fit parts of it into different areas of the larger curriculum. Although it is aimed at nursing students, much of the curriculum could be used with other learners such as medical students or residents. – Barbara Bayldon, MD, NCEAS
