During this one hour online meeting organised by the Faculty of Public Health's Primary Care and Public Health SIG, hear from Dr Tomlinson about the model of 'trauma-informed care' in primary care. Dr Tomlinson will discuss examples of when the model is important and how it can be approached.
Jonathon Tomlinson has been a GP and educator at the Lawson Practice for almost 20 years. His clinical practice is grounded in continuity of care and human relationships. His clinical interests are intractable problems like chronic pain, medically explained symptoms and obesity. The frequency with which adverse childhood experiences and other types of trauma are in the background with these conditions led to his present interest in complex trauma and social, physiological and psychological consequences. He is chair of trustees for the Centre for Health and The Public Interest and a Trustee for the Shoreditch Trust and a member of the London Aces Hub. He is a husband and dad to boys and a cyclist who rides just a bit faster than his skills permit, so regularly experiences being an NHS patient.
