IOSW AUG 2020 - Core Task: Unit Integration - IOS vs. Traditional Mental Health and Liaison role to MTF: Maj McNabb
One of the Air Force Surgeon General's primary objectives is to optimize the health and human performance of installation operational units through direct operational support of Air Force Medical Service assets. The base OST is a multidisciplinary team of medical personnel with expertise related to mitigation of military occupation related physical or psychological stressors. The workshop will provide instruction on how to work in an embedded environment which will include building relationships, conducting unit-level needs assessments, performing time-limited integration in high risk squadrons, commander consultation and intervention.
We will be training active duty Air Force psychologists, social workers and technicians as well as their civilian counterparts.
