Inside Nursing: Preparing providers to care for veterans and their families

Author(s): Johns Hopkins School of Nursing

It’s not uncommon for health care providers to feel that they lack the knowledge and training to provide adequate and culturally competent care to veterans and their family members. More veterans are also seeking health care in the civilian sector, and it’s critically important for clinicians to have the knowledge, skills, and resources to care for this unique population.

In this episode, Drs. Rita D’Aoust and Alicia Gill Rossiter, co-editors of the new book Caring for Veterans and their Families: A Guide for Nurses and Healthcare Professionals, discuss how their book is helping to close the knowledge gap faced by clinicians and how education can continue to improve to meet the needs of those who serve in the Armed Forces.
