The Development of a Trauma-Informed Care Measure: Can Universal Precautions Address the Complexity of Trauma?
A system that is trauma-informed, recognizes how interpersonal, community, and organizational systems contribute to health outcomes. Currently, research on TIC has been unable to translate basic scientific findings of trauma to research studies that evaluate the implementation of TIC. As such, the field is unable to offer valuable recommendations to implement TIC in different settings. The present study aimed to develop a measure of TIC to be used in medical settings. The resulting measure was revised through qualitative feedback from individuals who have experienced trauma and tested with an online convenient sample. The measure was re-evaluated with a second sample to account for previous missing data problems. The study also evaluated if the measure of TIC was predictive of medication adherence. Findings and implications for each development phase are discussed.
