A broad scan of the literature about trauma informed care was undertaken to better understand evidence-based approaches to trauma informed service delivery and workforce responsiveness, and factors supporting implementation. This report describes why using a trauma-informed approach is important, what it involves, and how organisations can implement it.

Worker wellbeing is another key area of concern.
