This integrative review was conducted to examine research that explores the effectiveness of open-access interdisciplinary care and outreach in engaging homeless veterans in health care. The literature reviewed for this study provided substantial evidence for the benefits of open-access clinics, an interdisciplinary team, and outreach for the sustainability of engaging homeless veterans in health care. The advanced practice nurse plays a valuable role in this process as there is need for enhanced program and policy development to meet the needs of this population as well as the demand to disseminate population-specific education to the interdisciplinary team.
