Serving Those Who Serve
April 29 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pmFree – $20
Following the Military Family’s contribution of selfless service and sacrifice to our collective needs for freedom and safety as a community united by nation, healthcare professionals have an opportunity to fulfill the important role of providing support to their subsequent health and healing needs. As Military Members, Veterans, and their Families are increasingly seeking support within community healthcare settings, it is imperative for professionals to be, at a minimum, armed with information to appropriately and effectively manage contact. It is our call to action to assure operative responsiveness by way of reducing barriers, promoting accessibility to services, and mobilizing resources. This 2.5 hour workshop intends to further inform the professional’s conceptualizations and skills repertoire while providing overview of basic military cultural and clinical competencies in line with specific State of Connecticut Department of Public Health licensing renewal continuing education requirements to serve those who have served.
2 Continuing Education Credits will be provided ($20 processing fee). Must register through Eventbrite to obtain CEUs. Register at: https://servingthosewhoserve429.eventbrite.com
