HANYS Recovery and Preparedness Webinar Series: A Trauma-informed Behavioral Healthcare Approach to Advance Health Equity - Recording

July 27, 2020

3 - 4 p.m.

Registration is open to HANYS Members and Non Members

The COVID-19 pandemic is causing pervasive trauma that impacts the mental health of individuals and communities, disproportionately affecting populations already at higher risk of trauma. This webinar will offer insight into how healthcare providers can shift behavioral healthcare delivery by leveraging trauma-informed practices to support the overall health of the organization, engage patients and families and help address systemic health disparities.


  • recognize the connection between social determinants of health and trauma;
  • describe the impact of trauma on patient and family engagement, and treatment outcomes;
  • describe how trauma-informed responses help address systemic health disparities; and
  • identify trauma-informed best practices that promote patient and staff engagement and contribute to health equity.

HANYS Recovery and Preparedness Webinar Series
This webinar is part of the HANYS Recovery and Preparedness Webinar Series held every Wednesday at 3 p.m. Additional sessions will take place as needed on Mondays at the same time.

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced healthcare organizations and providers to navigate unprecedented operational and clinical challenges, which will continue as the curve flattens and we move toward recovery.

In the recovery phase, healthcare organizations and providers need to re-evaluate their operations and plans for delivering care in a post-pandemic world. As they plan for the “new normal” and a potential second surge of COVID-19, healthcare leaders must consider their use of telemedicine, infection prevention and control practices, supply chain management and infrastructure changes. To assist with planning for the recovery phase, the sessions will feature national and state experts to explore strategies and considerations for this new phase of the pandemic. Additional sessions are listed below:

July 20: COVID-19 Care Collaborative — Sharing Lessons Learned to Prepare for the Future

July 22: Improving Experience of Families who Lost Their Loved Ones in the ICU Before and During Covid-19 Pandemic

July 29: Coastal Storm Evacuation Planning

August 17: Moving Telehealth and Digital Care Beyond
