Military Cultural Competence

 

Currently, well over two million people are serving in the Active or Selected Reserve components of the United States military, around the country and around the world. With more than two million deployments since 2001 and a continued presence in areas of conflict as well as humanitarian missions, the need for quality, culturally competent care for Service members and their families has never been greater. In this course you will acquire knowledge regarding military culture so that you can understand, communicate, and effectively interact with Service members and their families. Having basic knowledge regarding the values, structure, policies, and expectations of the military can promote a stronger client-provider alliance and help you develop the skills you need to provide the most effective clinical care. This course teaches you about military rank structure, the branches of service, their missions and core values, active versus reserve status components, demographic characteristics, as well as general and deployment-related military terminology. With a blend of representative scenarios and exercises, you will utilize the tools you need to implement this information. This course is appropriate for all individuals working with military populations. If you are taking this course within a learning management system that offers continuing education credit, you must successfully pass the final exam and complete the course evaluation in order to receive credit.

Military Cultural Competence is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 14.
