This module describes the unique health conditions of returning veterans.


The goal of this continuing education program is to provide nurses, dietitians, and other healthcare professionals with information on the medical (both physical and psychological) needs of military veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan. After studying the information presented here, you will be able to:
  • Describe unique health conditions of returning veterans
  • Identify resources available to returning veterans to help them manage their healthcare needs for military-related medical conditions
  • Discuss the role of healthcare professionals in caring for returning veterans in the community

I hope that many providers take this course since it helps outline the unique and lonely situation that returning vets face.
