A group of Trauma-informed Care (TIC) experts have drafted a set of TIC competencies for medical students. Competencies are knowledge, attitudes and skills that students should master before graduating and becoming doctors. We are looking for members of the ACEs community who have lived experience with trauma to help validate and provide feedback on the proposed competencies. Participants will be selected from the list of candidates to represent a diversity of perspectives and lived experiences in trauma-related professional fields.
- Complete 3 online surveys, each of which has approximately 60 questions. Each survey will take 60-90 minutes to complete.
- Complete surveys by the deadlines. You will have 2 weeks to complete each survey.
- You will be asked to evaluate each competency in several domains using a 5-point scale. You will also have the option to provide written feedback.
- There are no direct benefits or monetary benefits to participation.
- Be part of advancing trauma-informed care and ACEs-informed approaches within medical education
- The content of the competencies references trauma, and may be distressing to some participants, especially those with lived experiences of trauma
- The content of the competencies contains no descriptions of trauma and all participants will be provided with a resource guide should they encounter any distress
