Dr. Moore seeks to improve knowledge dissemination to nursing students on Veterans’ related health issues. The special population group of Veterans and their family members has certain conditions, which while not unique to Veterans, do occur with increased frequency. Special conditions include post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD; recognition and treatment), mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI), women Veterans, environmental exposures, palliative care for Veterans, homelessness, and Veteran suicide. There are over 24 million Veterans in the U.S.
