Understanding Our Veterans’ Healthcare

This webinar is designed to assist healthcare professionals to learn how to better support veterans by understanding the unique challenges and health impacts associated with military service. It will cover the transition challenges veterans and their families face and introduce the VETERANS lens, a structured approach for effective care in a General Practice setting.

Key Areas of Focus

  • Impact of Military Service on Health: Gain insights into how military service affects veterans' health and wellbeing, considering both physical and mental health aspects.
  • Transition Challenges: Understand the difficulties veterans and their families may encounter during the transition from military to civilian life, including barriers and stigmas.
  • VETERANS Lens: Learn how to use the VETERANS lens, a consulting tool designed to guide clinicians through the specific aspects of patient care relevant to veterans and their families.

Importance of understanding veterans’ healthcare

Whether you have a few veteran patients or serve a large veteran community, this webinar will provide essential information to enhance your understanding of who veterans are and the challenges they face. You'll learn about the unique health conditions and potential occupational exposures that differ from the general patient population.
