Family and Primary Care Physicians free online training to enhance your care of veterans and their family members
Did you know that only about 50% of the veterans qualified for VA Benefits will seek assistance from the VA? Many times local primary care physicians are the only health providers to see these patients. The North Carolina AHEC has designed a course from a primary care perspective to help busy practitioners recognize, diagnose, treat or refer service related mental health issues affecting veterans and their family members. The training entitled Treating the Invisible Wounds of War (TTIWW) is free and can be completed in the privacy of your office or at home. Click here to access the online training.
The VWWP Education Portal for Community Providers offers resources for Veterans, National Guard and Reserve Members, and their families. Explore the online learning opportunities that have been gathered here for your use.
