TRICARE Trains Civilian Providers on Military Behavioral Health


FALLS CHURCH, Va. – January 27, 2009

TRICARE Management Activity (TMA) is offering a pilot program that delivers post traumatic stress disorder and traumatic brain injury (PTSD/TBI) education to civilian behavioral health providers in a convenient, online setting. The new civilian provider portal can be accessed at civilianprovidereducation.

The portal, which is supported by Oracle Corp., is designed to offer courses that specifically educate civilian primary care and mental health providers on combat care related to military experiences. TMA established the portal in response to the success of week-long on-site behavioral health training sessions it previously provided to civilian providers in various locations throughout the United States.

“This online training offers 17 continuing medical education units to participating providers in addition to the convenience of taking courses anytime, anywhere,” said Army Maj. Gen. Elder Granger, TMA deputy director. “Educating civilian providers about military culture and associated behavioral health issues continues to be one of TRICARE’s priorities. Online courses are an additional tool TRICARE offers to make valuable training more accessible.”

In addition to the provider portal, TRICARE offers a fundamentals course at tricareu. Some topics include eligibility, enrollment and benefits.
