4032-18: Trauma Informed Medication Education

Patients with trauma histories frequently confront polypharmacy and prescribing relationships rife with miscommunication. Guidelines for initiating or supporting a “de-prescribing” model, and addressing non-adherence will be reviewed. Facilitated practice of brief cognitive restructuring of medication beliefs and challenging conversations about the meaning of medications will get everyone talking.
