With the increasing need for health care providers to have the knowledge, skills and abilities to provide evidence based health care services to returning soldiers and combat veterans and their families living in Alaska, the DHHS/DPH/Section of Health Planning and Systems Development in collaboration with the Veterans Administration is currently working on a rural veterans health access project to increase capacity for and access to health services for veterans living in rural Alaska.
As part of this project, we would like to present the following series of 23 one hour on-line and on-demand trainings for medical and behavioral health providers in Alaska. The Home Base Program in collaboration with the Veteran Administrations National Center for PTSD is providing this free, CME-certified educational series to assist clinicians in the diagnosis and treatment of the silent wounds of war in returning veterans and their families. This live, on-line, interactive educational series is led by nationally recognized faculty with expertise in diagnosing and treating PTSD and TBI with traditional and complementary evidence-based therapy. The faculty will also address the needs of military families and review how to recognize and treat the emotional stress present in spouses, parents, and children of veterans with PTSD or TBI.
