Invisible wounds of war : psychological and cognitive injuries, their consequences, and services to assist recovery by Terri L Tanielian( )

25 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 3,264 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A comprehensive study of the post-deployment health-related needs associated with post-traumatic stress disorder, major depression, and traumatic brain injury among servicemembers returning from Operations Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom, the health care system in place to meet those needs, gaps in the care system, and the costs associated with these conditions and with providing quality health care to all those in need
Hidden heroes : America's military caregivers by Rajeev Ramchand( )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 1,124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"While much has been written about the role of caregiving for the elderly and chronically ill and for children with special needs, little is known about "military caregivers"--The population of those who care for wounded, ill, and injured military personnel and veterans. These caregivers play an essential role in caring for injured or wounded service members and veterans. This enables those for whom they are caring to live better quality lives, and can result in faster and improved rehabilitation and recovery. Yet playing this role can impose a substantial physical, emotional, and financial toll on caregivers. This report summarizes the results of a study designed to describe the magnitude of military caregiving in the United States today, as well as to identify gaps in the array of programs, policies, and initiatives designed to support military caregivers. Improving military caregivers' well-being and ensuring their continued ability to provide care will require multifaceted approaches to reducing the current burdens caregiving may impose, and bolstering their ability to serve as caregivers more effectively. Given the systematic differences among military caregiver groups, it is also important that tailored approaches meet the unique needs and characteristics of post-9/11 caregivers."--Abstract
Military caregivers : cornerstones of support for our nation's wounded, ill, and injured veterans by Terri L Tanielian( )

7 editions published in 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 645 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The United States has been at war longer than any time in its history. While thousands have been wounded in this long-running conflict, advances in battlefield medicine mean many of our troops survive catastrophic wounds. The nature of many of their wounds, however, means some require long-term care- giving support. Those caregivers often toil in relative obscurity, and they are challenging to count or describe. They are spouses, parents, children, and relatives of the wounded veteran, but many coworkers, neighbors, and friends also take on responsibilities. They provide care and assistance, promoting faster recovery for their loved ones and thus saving our nation millions of dollars in health care costs. However, the personal impact of providing this care is enormous. The time required can result in lost jobs, lost wages, and a possible loss of health insurance; in addition, physical and emotional toll can be substantial. This report assesses the needs of military care-givers, scans the services available to them, and identifies how their needs are, and are not, being met. This report reviews existing research on the needs of care-givers in general, and assesses how lessons learned can be applied to military caregivers
Physical and psychological health following military sexual assault : recommendations for care, research, and policy by Coreen Farris( )

7 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 641 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Awareness of military sexual assault--sexual assault of a servicemember--has been increasing within the Department of Defense (DoD). The DoD is striving to improve this situation, but unique conditions of life in the military may make response to these events more difficult than within the civilian sector. This paper reviews the prevalence of sexual assault among servicemembers, victim responses in the immediate aftermath of a sexual assault, barriers to disclosure, victim needs, and DoD efforts to provide necessary resources to victims. The authors review civilian guidelines for the care of physical injuries, response to STI/HIV and pregnancy risk, forensic services, advocacy and support services, and formal mental health care. They then review DoD directives, forms, and guidelines for sexual assault victim care, revealing that these generally are consistent with civilian guidelines. However, little is known about the fidelity with which these DoD recommendations are implemented. The authors close with recommendations for future research to support the DoD{u2019}s commitment to a culture free of sexual assault, including a comprehensive, longitudinal epidemiological study of military sexual assault, a needs assessment of disclosed and undisclosed military victims, an evaluation of the training enterprise, and an evaluation to document the extent to which DoD directives requiring immediate, evidence-based care for military victims are being implemented with fidelity
The Deployment Life Study : methodological overview and baseline sample description by Terri L Tanielian( )

6 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 575 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the past decade, U.S. military families have experienced extreme stress, as U.S. soldiers, sailors, airmen, and marines have experienced extended and repeated deployments. As a result, U.S. policymakers and Department of Defense leadership have placed an emphasis on family readiness for deployment and other military-related stressors. However, family readiness is not a well-understood construct. The Deployment Life Study was designed to provide a deeper understanding of family readiness and to address the sources of readiness among military families. It is a longitudinal study of military families over the course of a full deployment cycle--predeployment, during deployment, and postdeployment. Over the course of three years, the study will follow 2,724 families from each service and component, interviewing service members, their spouses, and one child between the ages of 11 and 17 in each family (if applicable) every four months. Baseline data are weighted to be representative of married service members who were eligible to deploy sometime between June 1, 2012, and December 31, 2012. This report describes the Deployment Life Study theoretical model; the content of the baseline assessment; the design and procedures associated with data collection, sampling and recruiting procedures; and the baseline sample of military families
Ready to serve : community-based provider capacity to deliver culturally competent, quality mental health care to veterans and their families by Terri L Tanielian( )

6 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 574 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ensuring that military veterans and their families have access to high-quality mental health care is a national priority. Over the past several years, the Departments of Defense and Veterans Affairs have increased the number of mental health professionals working within their facilities and have rolled out training and quality improvement initiatives designed to promote the use of evidence-based treatments. Despite these important efforts, research continues to demonstrate that many veterans prefer to seek services outside the Department of Defense and/or the Department of Veterans Affairs. Thus, providers working in the civilian sector are an increasingly important part of the overall workforce addressing veterans' mental health needs. To better understand a key aspect of our nation's ability to provide veterans and their families with access to high-quality mental health care, RAND conducted a survey of civilian mental health providers to gather information about their competency with military and veteran culture and their training and experience treating posttraumatic stress disorder and depression. This report provides the results of that survey. The findings and recommendations from this study should be relevant to individuals, organizations, and policy officials concerned about the capacity of the civilian health care sector to deliver culturally competent, high-quality services to veterans and their families
Supporting the mental health needs of veterans in the metro Detroit area by Terri L Tanielian( )

5 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 553 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Supporting the mental health needs of veterans is a national priority. Over the past decade, there have been several studies describing the needs of the veteran population, particularly those who served in the post-9/11 era, calling for improved access to high-quality mental health services. In response, the federal government has expanded funding and services to meet increasing demand. At the same time, there has also been a proliferation of nongovernmental support to improve services for veterans in local communities. Often, in an attempt to deploy resources quickly, new programs and services are implemented without a full understanding of the specific needs of the population. This report discusses findings and recommendations from a study designed to gather information on the mental health- elated needs facing veterans in the Detroit metropolitan area to identify gaps in the support landscape and inform future investments for community-level resources to fill the identified gaps
Public-private partnerships for providing behavioral health care to veterans and their families : what do we know, what do we need to learn, and what do we need to do? by Eric R Pedersen( )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 497 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

American veterans and their family members struggle with behavioral health problems, yet few engage in treatment to address these problems. Barriers to care include trouble accessing treatment and limited communication between civilian and military health care systems, which treat veterans and their family members separately. Even though the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is making efforts to address barriers to care, more work is needed to effectively serve veterans and their families. Public-private partnerships have been discussed as a potential solution and could include collaborations between a public agency, such as the VA, and a private organization, such as a veteran service organization, private industry, or private hospital. Despite the call for such partnerships, not much is known about what a public-private partnership would entail for addressing behavioral health concerns for veterans and their families. The health care literature is sparse in this area, and published examples and recommendations are limited. Thus, the authors wrote this report to inform the creation of public-private partnerships to better serve veterans and their families. The report outlines nine key components for public-private partnerships addressing veteran behavioral health care. These components are supported by qualitative interview data from five successful public-private partnerships that serve veterans and their families. This report will assist policymakers in the VA and other federal agencies in developing and fostering public-private partnerships to address the behavioral health care needs of veterans and their families. The report also discusses next steps for research and policymaking efforts with regard to these partnerships
Impact of a uniform formulary on military health system prescribers : baseline survey results( Book )

6 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pharmaceuticals represent one of the fastest growing components of both U.S. civilian and Department of Defense (DoD) health care expenditures. Both the DoD and U.S. Congress have identified the Military Health System pharmacy benefit as an area for reform. To this end, federal legislation requires the DoD to establish a single uniform formulary (UF) of covered drugs governing beneficiaries' access to pharmaceuticals. The legislation also requires a baseline survey conducted prior to UF implementation and a follow-up post-implementation survey. The baseline survey that is the subject of this study gauged prescribers' experiences with and perceptions of drug formularies. The study assessed their opinions about the impact of formularies on clinical decisions, aggregate cost, and quality and accessibility of health care. Two groups of TRICARE prescribers were sampled-direct-care providers within military treatment facilities and providers at network (purchased-care) facilities. Differences were observed within each sample. For example, most direct-care prescribers reported a high degree familiarity with their respective formularies and formulary management practices and perceived formulary management as contributing toward quality of care, whereas most purchased-care respondents reported less familiarity with formulary lists and the rules governing their use and did not believe that formulary management contributes to quality of care
Evidence based care models for recognizing and treating alcohol problems in primary care settings by Katherine Watkins( Book )

5 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 155 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Alcohol-related problems are a significant public health concern in the United States. Alcohol dependence, abuse, and problem drinking increase morbidity and mortality (McGinnis, 1993), and raise economic, social and health care costs (Institute for Health Policy, 1993; Rice, 1991; Manning, 1989; US Department of Health and Human Services, 1993). A recent study estimated that the total economic cost of alcohol-related problems was $148 billion in 1992: $18.8 billion in health care costs, $67.7 billion in lost productivity and $19.7 billion in crime (Harwood, 1998). Effective treatments exist for the entire spectrum of alcohol-related problems (Fleming, 1997; CSAT TIP #28; NIAAA, 1995), but fewer than half of those individuals who need treatment actually receive it (Institute of Medicine, 1990). One in 5 men and 1 in 10 women who visit their primary care providers meet the criteria for at-risk drinking, problem drinking or alcohol dependence (Manwell et al, 1998); (Flemming and Manwell, 1999). Primary care physicians (PCPs) are in an ideal position to screen for alcohol problems, begin treatment, and monitor progress. However, primary care systems are not set up to support PCPs in recognizing and treating alcohol use disorders. Since many of these patients do not consult alcohol treatment specialists on their own, important opportunities for identification and treatment are missed (Alcohol Research and Health, 2000). A recent national survey of primary care physicians and patients noted that more than nine in ten physicians fail to identify substance abuse in adults. The majority of patients with substance abuse say that their primary care physician did nothing to either assess or treat their substance abuse (CASA, 2000). A recent study of primary care physicians in Ohio in which 4454 patient visits were observed revealed that screening for alcohol problems took place during 8% of the visits, and only 1% of the patients received counseling on alcohol problems
The deployment life study : longitudinal analysis of military families across the deployment cycle( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 2009, RAND launched the Deployment Life Study, a longitudinal study of military families across a deployment cycle in order to assess family readiness. Family readiness refers to the state of being prepared to effectively navigate the challenges of daily living experienced in the unique context of military service. The study surveyed families at frequent intervals throughout a complete deployment cycle -- before a service member deploys (sometimes months before), during the actual deployment, and after the service member returns (possibly a year or more after she or he redeployed). It assessed a number of outcomes over time, including: the quality of marital and parental relationships; the psychological, behavioral, and physical health of family members; child and teen well-being (e.g., emotional, behavioral, social, and academic); military integration (e.g., attitudes toward military service, retention intentions). This culminating report briefly reviews the study design and data collection procedures, presents results from analyses of the longitudinal data collected from some 2,700 military families, and offers recommendations for programs and future research related to military families"--Publisher's web site
Enhancing capacity to address mental health needs of veterans and their families : the Welcome Back Veterans Initiative by Terri L Tanielian( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the context of the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan over the past decade, there have been a growing number of efforts designed to support service members, veterans, and their families as they cope with deployment and ensure that those who experience mental health problems following their service have access to high-quality care for themselves and their families. Among these is the Welcome Back Veterans (WBV) Initiative, launched in 2008 by Major League Baseball and the Robert R. McCormick Foundation. During 2011{u2013}2013, the WBV Initiative issued grants to academic medical institutions around the nation to create and implement programs and services designed to address the mental health needs of returning veterans and their families. In 2010, the McCormick Foundation asked RAND to join the WBV Initiative in a performance monitoring role. RAND designed a system of regular data reporting to assess performance and impact of the WBV-funded activities at each site. This report provides an overview of the WBV Initiative, summarizes the impact of WBV-funded programs during their funding cycle between February 2011 and June 2013, and outlines the lessons learned in implementing veteran support programs. It also discusses the role of partnerships and innovative strategies for outreach
The Unified Behavioral Health Center for Military Veterans and Their Families : documenting structure, process, and outcomes of care by Nicole K Eberhart( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Addressing the behavioral health needs of veterans and their families is a national priority. Over the past decade, multiple programs both within and outside of the federal government have been implemented to build additional capacity and expand access to high-quality behavioral health care for veterans and their families. Much of the nongovernmental effort has been funded by private philanthropy in an effort to build and expand public-private partnerships with the Department of Veterans Affairs. In 2012, Northwell Health, a private-sector, nonprofit health system, and the Northport Veterans Affairs Medical Center launched the Unified Behavioral Health Center for Military Veterans and their Families. This unique clinic, located in Bay Shore, New York, provides behavioral health services for both veterans and their family members. In 2014, the RAND Corporation was asked to design and conduct an evaluation of this model to document its structure, process, and outcomes of care in an effort to inform potential replications of this approach. This report presents the findings from this evaluation
Bridging gaps in mental health care : lessons learned from the Welcome Back Veterans Initiative by Terri L Tanielian( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over the past decade, there have been a growing number of efforts designed to support service members, veterans, and their families as they cope with deployments. Addressing the mental health consequences associated with these deployments has been a priority focus area across the government and nongovernment sectors. The Welcome Back Veterans (WBV) initiative was launched in 2008 by Major League Baseball and the Robert R. McCormick Foundation to support organizations that, in turn, provided programs and services to support veterans and their families. Since WBV’s founding, it has issued grants to academic medical institutions around the nation to create and implement programs and services designed to address the mental health needs of returning veterans and their families. Since 2013, WBV has made strides in assisting service members, veterans, and families and in facilitating collaboration among systems of care in local communities. However, strategic efforts are needed to promote sustainability and address emerging challenges as individual programs move toward greater coordination with others in the system of care for veterans. WBV grantees and other programs must continue adapting to sustain their mental health service offerings to meet the demand for care but also to improve integration and coordination. Expanding collaborative networks and adopting a system-of-systems approach may help private mental health care programs like WBV continue to build capacity and have a positive effect going forward
Improving support for America's hidden heroes : a research blueprint by Terri L Tanielian( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The United States is home to more than 21 million veterans, many of whom deployed to support combat operations around the globe during their military service and sustained service-related conditions or disabilities. Supporting these wounded, ill, and injured warriors once home are millions of informal caregivers—individuals who provide unpaid support with activities that enable the service member or veteran to live in a noninstitutionalized setting. In this report, researchers describe elements of a research blueprint to inform future efforts to improve support for military and veteran caregivers. To construct this blueprint, researchers inventoried currently available research on caregiving for disabled adults and children and gathered stakeholder input by conducting a survey and facilitating an online panel. The report highlights the need for more studies that examine how military and veteran caregiver needs evolve over time, how programs are working, and how caregiving affects specific subgroups. The resulting blueprint should serve as a guide for the caregiver support community to use in prioritizing and facilitating future research
Views from the homefront : the experiences of youth and spouses from military families( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As the United States continues deployments of service members to support operations in Iraq and Afghanistan, it is increasingly important to understand the effects of this military involvement, not only on service members but also on the health and well-being of their spouses and youth. The purpose of this report is to examine the functioning of a sample of youth in military families who applied to a free camp for children of military personnel and to specifically assess how these youth are coping with parental deployment. The report addresses the general well-being of military youth during and after parental deployment, with attention to their emotional, social, and academic functioning. It also examines the challenges that their nondeployed caregivers face. The study includes quantitative and qualitative components: three waves of phone surveys with youth and nondeployed caregivers, and in-depth interviews with a subsample of caregivers. The researchers found that children and caregivers who had applied to attend the camp confronted significant challenges to their emotional well-being and functioning. Four factors in particular (1) caregiver emotional well-being, (2) more cumulative months of deployment, (3) National Guard or Reserve status, and (4) quality of caregiver-youth communication were strongly associated with greater youth or caregiver difficulties

Expanding access to mental health counselors : evaluation of the TRICARE demonstration( )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The military health system serves roughly 9 million eligible beneficiaries, including active duty military personnel and their family members, retired military personnel and their family members, and surviving family members of deceased military personnel. Eligible beneficiaries access health care services through the TRICARE program. Mental health care, as well as other forms of health care under TRICARE, is delivered through the direct care system, which consists of military-owned treatment facilities (clinics and hospitals), and the purchased-care system, which consists of coverage for care rendered in the civilian sector. TRICARE provides coverage for most medically necessary mental health care services, including those delivered in inpatient, outpatient, and partial hospitalization settings by qualified providers. In response to the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2001, the Department of Defense implemented a 1-year demonstration project designed to expand access to mental health services by easing TRICARE restrictions on services provided by licensed or certified mental health counselors (LMHCs). Currently, LMHCs must meet several eligibility and administrative requirements to serve as authorized TRICARE providers, including documentation of referral and supervision from a physician. Under the demonstration project, LMHCs who met the TRICARE eligibility requirements were allowed to provide services to covered beneficiaries without referral by physicians or adherence to supervisory requirements. In the NDAA, Congress requested an evaluation of the demonstration's impact on utilization, costs, and patient outcomes. This report describes the evaluation efforts by the RAND Corporation and presents findings based on several sources of data. The report is organized according to specific responses to the evaluation's objectives outlined in the FY01 NDAA and is intended to be included in the sponsor's final report to Congress
Analysis of Department of Defense plans and responses to three potential anthrax incidents in March 2005 : executive summary( Book )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In March 2005, three potential anthrax-related incidents occurred at Department of Defense (DoD) mail facilities in and around Washington, D.C. Were DoD's responses in line with the National Response Plan (NRP) and the National Incident Management System (NIMS), the nation's instruments for reducing the risk associated with such incidents? DoD asked the RAND Corporation to examine the department's response to and management of the three incidents and analyze how well DoD's actions conformed with existing plans and guidelines. Although the three incidents and the responses were different, the authors found overarching issues to be considered and lessons to be learned from all three. They saw a need for continued planning, training, and exercising, with an eye toward flexibility and verification. They further saw a need for DoD managers and senior leaders to move away from ad hoc decisions and actions and hew more closely to the specified roles and responsibilities outlined in the NRP and NIMS
