Applying Military Cultural Competence for More Effective Care for Veterans

This webinar will focus on improving quality of treatment for Veterans by integrating research and knowledge of military culture into client care. It will focus on a client-centered approach to caring for Veterans, with a focus on effective communication, how that culture may affect the self and world views of Veterans, the impact of current events on Veterans’ wellbeing, barriers to care, and improving assessment and treatment planning for Veterans. 
Learning Objectives:
  1. Identify implications of military culture on healthcare for Veterans.
  2. Describe tips for assisting Veterans who are dealing with the impact of current events.
  3. Describe the importance of incorporating culturally-informed principles into practice, based on knowledge of the challenges and strengths of being a Veteran.
