“Fifteen Things Veterans Want You to Know” for healthcare providers is the cornerstone course for PsychArmor Institute and was created to help educate anyone who works with, lives with, or cares for our military service members, Veterans and their families. This special version of Fifteen Things focuses on healthcare providers and the most important factors for them to understand in order to provide outstanding care to our country’s Veterans. PsychArmor asked hundreds of military Veterans the one thing they wanted their providers to know about them. These comments were used to create the topics of this course. Narrated by Navy combat Veteran Dr. Heidi Kraft, Fifteen Things is military culture in the form of a sea story brought to life, and will change the way you look at your patients who wear or once wore our country’s uniform.
Demonstrate the importance of the military as a culture in their clinical interactions with Veterans and their families, describe at least three questions psychologists should ask Veteran patients when they get to know them, and discuss at least three values military people hold dear, and how they might affect your clinical interactions with them.
