Evaluating the Implementation of Goal Management Training Cognitive Remediation Therapy among OSI Clients in Quebec City

There is an urgent need to address the mounting crisis of mental illness, and in particular posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), among military members and Veterans in Canada. PTSD is associated with changes in cognitive functioning across multiple domains (e.g., poor memory and attention) that can negatively impact military members and Veteran. Goal Management Training (GMT) is a cognitive remediation strategy that has been found to improve memory, attention and ability to engage in complex reasoning in individuals with PTSD. Due to restrictions related to COVID-19, GMT was adopted to an online delivery method in an Occupational Stress Injury (OSI) clinic. The currently study aims to evaluate the online delivery of GMT members among OSI service providers. The results of this study can be used to inform the future delivery of online GMT to OSI clients, and ways in which the process of providing GMT can be improved.
