The Right Tool for the Job

Here's a situation that many rural health care providers can relate to: You just finished an appointment with a new Veteran patient who shared their trauma history and you feel uncertain about the best approach to their treatment. Or, you might be hurting from the experience of hearing about their suffering. In either case, this section of the toolkit helps you reach for just the right tool (e.g., consultation, care assessment, professional organizations, continued education) to help you provide the best care to your patients and manage your own self-care.
