Update From the Office on Women's Health
Today marks PTSD Awareness Day. Women who have gone through trauma, including women in the military, are more likely than men who’ve experienced trauma to develop post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). If you provide care to women in the military or female veterans, consider these resources.
Continuing Education Opportunities
The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) provides free, in-depth continuing education resources for health professionals concerned with trauma. Courses are available for CE and CME credit on a variety of topics, including assessment, treatment practices, and patient engagement.
