A statewide survey conducted by CHRT finds that less than ten percent of Michigan’s health care providers are prepared to serve the state’s aging veterans—a growing and particularly vulnerable population. The researchers found that only about one in five (19 percent) of the health and mental health providers surveyed reported formal training in military culture or the specific health needs of veterans. About half of the providers surveyed (49 percent) reported that they would be interested in receiving this training. Roughly one-third (32 percent) indicated no such interest. CHRT offers several recommendations including screening patients for veteran status and common conditions associated with service (including PTSD, exposure to chemical agents, chronic back pain, traumatic brain injury, and military sexual trauma); training providers in military culture and conditions associated with service; and increasing awareness about VA resources and support services.
