Abstract

Trauma is a major global health problem. Currently a trauma curriculum, from a psychological perspective, has not been uniformly incorporated in medical education. Nonetheless, professionals from various medical disciplines have an integral role in providing trauma care to survivors. The current COVID-19 pandemic only underscores the relevance and urgent need of this training, as studies show an uptick in mental health disorders due to this trauma. This article will present a discussion on the need for trauma curriculum for health care professionals, using information gained through trauma informed care workshops for healthcare personnel at Aga Khan University Hospital Pakistan.
