Request for Qualification: Writer for Practice Paper Implementing ACEs Screening & Trauma-Informed Care in California
Updated: January 22, 2021
The Clinical and Quality Partners (CQP) team is seeking a writer to lead the creation and written content development of a practice paper on adverse childhood experiences.
Primary Care Development Corporation’s (PCDC) CQP team was awarded a grant from the Office of the California Surgeon General (CA-OSG) and the Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) to participate in the state’s ACEs Aware initiative. Adverse childhood experiences, like physical and mental abuse and neglect can adversely affect the health of adults years later even after the experiences are over. ACEs have a direct impact on many of the most common and serious chronic diseases like type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and others. By addressing both childhood and current trauma, healthcare can positively impact the health outcomes of people who have experienced trauma. Through this grant, PCDC has been conducting a six-month virtual learning series titled “Supporting Small but Mighty Practices in Screening for and Addressing ACEs (Adverse Childhood Events) in CA” and will be writing a subsequent practice paper on the topic to promote the ACEs Aware initiative among the Medi-Cal provider community across California.
