Be Involved in Your Healthcare
Many Veterans use the Internet to get information about their medical concerns. Do a “google” search on any disease or medication and you will find hundreds of websites. Yet how does one know if the information is accurate? Not all the information on the Internet is accurate or trustworthy. Bad information can lead to serious health problems for Veterans and their families.
Now Veterans have an accurate place to get health information designed especially for them. The newest and best tool to help Veterans stay informed is the Veterans Health Library. It is a great source for understandable medical and health information. Whether interested in diabetes, PTSD, quitting tobacco or a new medication, you will find information you can trust.
This easy-to-use website lets users to print health and medication information sheets, view more than 150 education videos and complete online workbooks to answer health questions. Learn about common health problems as well as problems that are unique to Veterans.
The Veterans Health Library home page has links for Diseases and Conditions, Mental Health, Tests and Treatments, and tips for healthy living. In the “Living With” section, family and caregivers will find valuable information on how to help Veterans adjust to problems like PTSD, brain injury and dementia.
