Health care's familiarity with military culture critical to improving care for veterans
from University of Buffalo via Science 2.0
Health care systems and providers need to understand the unique realities of military culture in order to work effectively with veterans and military families, according to the findings of a study by a University at Buffalo research team. Results of the paper, published in the journal Military Behavioral Health, suggest that health care and mental health care providers and staff should receive training that provides them with enough knowledge to understand the military's culture and values and how that belief system also affects the veterans' transition from a service member identity to a civilian identity.
