  1. How do individuals within typically marginalized populations experience being asked about adverse childhood experiences or childhood trauma?

Key Message

This report updates two prior CADTH reports, with the primary goal to include the pediatric population (see Appendix). In the updated search, no new studies were identified that represent either the adult or pediatric population. Overall, one evidence synthesis and six primary qualitative or mixed methods studies exploring the experiences of typically margianalized populations regarding history taking of adverse childhood experiences or trauma as part of primary care were identified from the previous two reports. All included studies focus on the adult population. No studies were identified as relevant to the pediatric population.
