This is a Center for Victims of Torture (CVT)-produced toolkit focusing specifically on improving health care interventions for refugees in the primary care setting in the United States. It was developed based on CVT’s 35 years of providing care to torture and war trauma survivors in Minnesota and 5 years of exporting that care to two primary care clinics. It is intended for use by a range of staff working in the primary care setting, including but not limited to: physicians, nurses, psychotherapists, social workers, interpreters, pharmacists and support staff. This resource is available on the website for the Center for Victims of Torture National Capacity Building Project.
