Abstract:

Introduction The CERP project aims to create a systems-based model for describing and evaluating resilience, with the expert input of a diverse group of scientists who help to identify metrics and create a testable model of resilience such that it can be applied to the evaluation of resilience, health and fitness in military populations. The specific aims of CERP are to 1 Review and identify key domains for systems based assessment of health and fitness with particular relevance to military populations 2 Convene a network of experts termed the HARNESS group to review the state of the science and identify metrics to be used in a systems based model of resilience 3 Use the HARNESS group to identify or create standard analytical processes criteria and procedures for implementing resilience and fitness program tracking i.e., the Health and Fitness Space Map, in part by identifying avenues for testing the created analytical model and 4 Publish, communicate and disseminate information about this systems framework, its evaluation standards and translational processes widely so that they become available for use in the Department of Defense DoD, Veterans Affairs VA and other systems.
