Improving Care & Treatment For Serving Personnel, Veterans And Families - New E-learning Programme



Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare, with support from NHS England, has launched an e-learning programme to help increase understanding of the armed forces population and facilitate improved care and treatment.  
The programme covers current serving personnel, veterans and their families.

Whilst many aspects of health need are the same as the general public, there are sometimes significant differences, particularly in relation to conditions attributable to service life and the impact upon families. These differences can be reflected in the way in which healthcare is delivered, the range and types of services provided and the long-term impact upon patients and families.
