Online Study Opportunity

Good Afternoon,

Midwestern University in Illinois is looking for licensed healthcare professionals working in Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHC) across the Midwest to take part in about a one-hour trauma-informed care study. This study incorporates a free webinar-based training designed to educate healthcare professionals on trauma-informed care. The educational webinar is 45 minutes, and the study questions take about 15-20 minutes.  

Given the high prevalence rates of adversity and trauma in society, this study aims first to provide learning on trauma-informed care, and second, to investigate if the webinar increased knowledge and attitudes towards trauma-informed care. The long-term goal is to help us to bring awareness to the level of knowledge, attitude, practice, and perceived barriers towards trauma-informed care so that FQHCs can incorporate this information into their efforts at implementing trauma-informed care. 

In order to be eligible to participate, you must be a licensed health care professional (i.e., medical, dental, or mental health provider) and be currently employed at an FQHC across the Midwest. The full study procedures, including the measures and the training, will take approximately one hour to 1 hour and twenty minutes.
