The Impact of Adverse Childhood Experiences on Health: A Personal Story of Resilience and Hope with Coach Beverly

Adverse childhood experiences (ACE) are associated with an increased risk of diabetes, heart disease, cancer and a variety of other health consequences for adults. This session reviews how diabetes care and education specialists can provide screening, assessment, and trauma-informed care to individuals who experienced ACEs and are living with toxic stress.  We will explore strategies to address ACES and improve outcomes for individuals and communities. Throughout, we will focus on supporting self-care with a focus on recognizing and promoting resilience.

Topics include:

  • Discuss the benefits of assessing Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) in individuals with diabetes.
  • State the relationship between ACE Scores and risk of future health complications.
  • Describe a person-centered approach to fostering resilience and self-care for individuals with toxic stress.
  • Identify two strategies to provide trauma-informed care in your work setting.

Intended Audience: This course is a knowledge-based activity designed for individuals or groups of diabetes educators, including RNs, RDs, Pharmacists, Nurse Practitioners, Clinical Nurse Specialists, Physician Assistants, and other health care providers interested in enhancing their diabetes medication knowledge.
