The Care of Returning Service Members and Their Families: What Family Physicians should Know
The Care of Returning Service Members and Their Families: What Family Physicians Should Know has been developed for primary care providers that treat returning service members and their families. Military personnel and their families have a unique set of needs; service members face serious conditions, such as post traumatic stress disorder and traumatic brain injury, which affect their well-being and that of their families. Family physicians have the opportunity and ability to help military families manage many of the difficulties with which they struggle; identifying those at risk in a timely fashion is crucial.
