Implementing trauma-informed approaches within primary care marks a fundamental shift in care delivery that supports improved utilization of services, improved patient outcomes, increased staff satisfaction and healthier work environments.

To better address trauma in primary care, Kaiser Permanente and the National Council for Behavioral Health (National Council) launched the Trauma-Informed Care Primary Care: Fostering Resilience and Recovery initiative to develop, test, disseminate and scale a field-informed Change Package.

An 11-member national Practice Transformation Team convened to develop the Change Package to provide information, action steps and tools to guide implementation of a trauma-informed primary care approach. Following the initial development of the Change Package, seven primary care organizations, the Primary Care Learning Community, worked with the National Council to pilot the tool and provided feedback to inform its refinement. This Change Package is a result of the generous efforts by the Practice Transformation Team, the Primary Care Learning Community, National Council project staff and partners.
