Abstract

Date Presented 04/04/19

This scoping review assessed the current state of the OT literature regarding the military population. Twenty-seven articles were examined that facilitated mapping of the current evidence. Results indicate research has focused on the needs of service members and veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan. Further research is warranted to address the occupational needs of older veterans; gender, racial, and ethnic minorities; and military families to guide future research and advance best practice.
