OT VetSet: A Clinician’s Manual to Working with Veterans as Clients is designed to educate occupational therapy providers on unique client factors of veterans as well as provide resources to occupational therapy providers for the effective evaluation and treatment of veterans as clients. Using descriptive evidence of veterans as a population in conjunction with literary evidence on how to create effective learning for adults, OT VetSet can be truly considered an evidence-based tool. The tool is split into six lessons which range from introductory information including military terminology, conditions by service era, and considerations for mental health, to two case studies on fictional veterans (that were based on demographic information) as well as a list of resources for both providers and veterans. Each lesson is published in three sections including the introduction, content, and sample administration techniques. This doctoral project presents the evidence behind this design, funding plan, evaluation plan, and dissemination plan as well as a sample manual (via appendices) for future users to be able to replicate OT VetSet in their own facility.
