Abstract:

The purpose of this project is to develop the first longitudinal registry of combat-exposed men and women with posttraumatic stress disorder PTSD. This registry will provide essential data on the natural history and outcomes associated with PTSD in military service men and women who have utilized the Department of Veterans Affairs VA health care system. An additional goal of this project is to evaluate risk factors for PTSD among combat-exposed service men and women. The pilot phase of this project was completed in January 2010. Pilot data were collected on 13 men and 14 women. 73 met criteria for PTSD. Data collection for the full sample began in May 2010. To date, 169 phase 2 participants have completed.
