Presenters: Linna Tam-Seto

The National Defence and Canadian Forces Ombudsman’s Special Report, On the Homefront: Assessing the Well-being of Canada’s Military Families in the New Millennium, describes the impact of military lifestyle on the stability, mental health and well-being of Canadian military families. Unlike their American counterparts, Canadian military families access the civilian healthcare system. Since the military is perceived as its own culture, the need for cultural competency among occupational therapists working with military families is required. This webinar will present evidence-informed cultural competencies that can be used to support occupational therapy practice with military family members.


After taking part in this webinar, participants will:
  1. Recognize the unique challenges faced by Canadian military families when accessing health care services.
  2. Understand the military family cultural competencies relevant for client-centred occupational therapy practice.
