American College Of Surgeons - Inspiring Quality: Highest Standards, Better Outcomes

How We Can Help Our Returning Veterans

This session—presented October 2, 2012 during the American College of Surgeons (ACS) Annual Clinical Congress—describes the “Joining Forces” program, which is sponsored by the White House, the Department of Defense, the Veterans Administration, and all professional medical societies. Because it’s essential for surgeons to be aware of challenges of returning vets and how to refer them to care, the campaign and its efforts to meet the needs of returning veterans were discussed. The presentations listed below are included in the Joining Forces: How We Can Help Our Returning Veterans  Webcast. Begin viewing the webcast by clicking on the titles below.
