The PTSD Practitioner Exchange was an innovative research project for clinicians in three service sectorsthe VA, DoD, and the communitywhich aims to disseminate the most recent clinically relevant information and resources supporting delivery of key practices endorsed in the VA-DoD Clinical Practice Guideline for the Management of PTSD to support clinician well-being and to identify factors enabling the implementation of clinical best practices in the treatment of PTSD. In order to provide this Exchange a two-phase study was conducted. In Phase I, qualitative interviews were conducted with 53 providers to assess practitioner needs and interests in the registry as well as pre-test the proposed registry survey. In Phase II, an RCT was conducted to evaluate the impact of registry participation on practicesCPG awareness, receptivity and implementation. To date, the study team has completed all phases of the study.
