Evidence-Based Diagnostics and Therapies and Long-Term Forecasts of Needs Among Steps Necessary to Ease Iraq and Afghanistan Service Members' Readjustment to Post-Deployment Life
Released: 3/26/2013

To improve the ability of military service members and their families to readjust well to post-deployment life, the U.S. departments of Defense and Veterans Affairs should ensure that their systems have sufficient capacity to provide timely and adequate care to service members, veterans, and family members, and boost efforts to reduce the stigma associated with getting care for mental health and substance abuse problems, says a new report from the Institute of Medicine. DOD and VA also should ensure that they are using diagnostic tools and therapies that are in line with the latest medical evidence. In addition, the departments should complete work as soon as possible on a combined, interoperable electronic health record that will help service members and veterans more easily navigate the services offered by each department and ease the transition from one to the other.
