Pathways to care

How are pathways to care relevant to people with PTSD?

The help-seeking efforts made by an individual and their families when symptoms of PTSD are apparent, and the clinical services made available as a result of these efforts, are collectively known as ‘pathways to care’. Pathways to care can also encompass service structures that have not been actively sought by the individual.

What is the evidence for pathways to care?

Moderate to low quality evidence found the most commonly reported facilitators to initiation of evidence-based interventions for PTSD were flexibility of manualised approaches, less fear of increasing client distress, less problems working with comorbidities, and more training and support for clinicians.
