Summary

Clearly, the health and well-being of our serving troops and veterans is a key part of our mission success as an institution and by supporting the publication of books such as A New Coalition for a Challenging Battlefield, the Press is contributing signifi- cantly to the larger good. [...] The shift of the site of care from the hospital to the community/home and the increasing needs of an aging population, suggest that leaders/managers can play an important role in the community. [...] However, the application of competencies varies due to the delivery setting, the experience of the healthcare worker and most important- ly the needs of the client. [...] Note: the opinions expressed in this chapter reflect the opinion of the author and do not necessarily represent the opinion of the Canadian Army, the CF or the Department of Na- tional Defence. [...] Clearly, policies related to the length of postings and frequency of operational tours have the potential to affect the health and well-being of members and their families, as do the relative “health” of the communities they are posted to.
