Progress in completing planned Year 1 SOW activities has been delayed due to several factors, including 1 delays in completing an agreed upon data use agreement for data required by Vanderbilt and Purdue to complete analyses relevant to the training and feedback intervention design and 2 the 2010 NDAA Sec. 708 levied additional requirements that were not anticipated at the outset of the study, which directly impacted the study design. Despite these delays, substantial work has been completed in literature review, in psychometric analysis of materials to be used in the study, in staffing and approval processes completed, in completion of data use agreements with the Army, Navy, and Air Force, in formation and receipt of guidance by the Expert Panel, and in development of a strong working relationship among FHPR, Vanderbilt, and Purdue. Year 2 is expected to be highly productive. Early in Year 2, it is expected that data will be received and the training and feedback intervention design will be finalized. Implementation of the pilot is expected by May, 2011 with data collection to continue for four months. This will be followed by analysis and manuscript preparation. Vanderbilt expects these activities to extend beyond the current period of performance and plans to request a one-year extension to allow adequate time to complete the SOW.
