  • Assess my patient for traumatic stress from a recent (within past month) injury or illness
  • Assess my patient for PTSD from a previous injury or illness

  • Does this family need extra emotional or psychosocial support?
  • Assess pain in children
  • Assess basic patient / family needs around distress, emotional support, and family and develop a team-based care plan
