ACEs Screening: Promoting Resilience for All

Thursday, March 3, 2022 7:30 - 9AM

Course Description:

The California Department of Health Care Services is urging primary care teams to implement screening for Adverse Childhood Experiences or ACEs. This 90 minute Continuing Education session will offer inspiration and guidance on ACEs screening with a focus on resilience for all members of the healthcare team and patients. Regional practices will share successes and potential challenges, as well as concrete tools and organizational practices to implement this new workflow.


Learning Objectives:

(1) Share the data on necessity and benefits of screening for ACEs in youth, adults, and expectant parents.

(2) Define resilience and recognize how to integrate basic approaches to ACEs screening and referrals that will support resilience for both the screener and the patient/family that are time-sensitive and impactful.

(3) Identify resources to promote and sustain resilience when facing exhaustion, overwhelming challenges, and a sense of powerlessness.

(4) Acknowledge the necessity of recognizing the structural problems, including racism and inequality, in our healthcare system as one step toward overcoming them.

(5) Recognize strategies and challenges when implementing ACEs screening in community settings and how to learn and grow with these challenges.


Target Audience:

All members of multidisciplinary primary care teams as well as individuals in other care settings who interact with clients or patients in Merced, Monterey, and Santa Cruz Counties.
