February 28, 2019, 1 to 2 p.m. EDT — The unique health care needs of veterans pose significant challenges for providers. What’s required can best be called “military competency,” which is a set of tools and strategies aimed at successfully identifying, screening, and treating veterans. Military competency also means the ability to coordinate care across provider groups and health care facilities for specific medical conditions most prevalent in the veteran community.
During this webinar, HMA Principal Uche Uchendu, M.D., who also served as chief officer for health equity at the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, will outline best practices for providers hoping to achieve military cultural health competency. She will also offer a variety of hands-on strategies for immediately improving care to patients who are veterans.
