March 13: Supporting People from Refugee Backgrounds - Emergency Departments

Foundation House

People from refugee backgrounds, including people seeking asylum, have access to, and require informed approaches from, emergency departments. The nature of emergency departments can evoke strong reactions, linking patients to their prearrival traumatic experiences. Understanding those experiences and their impact on physical and psychological wellbeing is essential for emergency department professionals to effectively and safely assess, treat and discharge these patients. This webinar will describe pre-arrival experience and impact, practical trauma-informed approaches, health access and rights, and key skills in effective communication.
