Title Combat, Sexual Assault, and Post-Traumatic Stress in OIF/OEF MilitaryWomen.
Publication Date Jul 2012
Media Count 25p
Personal Author A. G. Sadler
Abstract This research addresses DoD and DV A health care delivery needs of two priority populations: women exposed to combat, and women sexually assaulted during military. There is a limited understanding of the complex relationship between these traumatic exposures and women's health outcomes, such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and traumatic brain injury (TBI) and with their subsequent health service use or barriers to care. Objective(s): The objectives of this study focus on identification of the antecedent risks for and consequent health outcomes of traumatic exposures (assault, combat) and barriers to DoD, VA and civilian health care for Regular Military (RM) servicewomen. We also seek to identify differences in these outcomes between RM and Reserve and National Guard (RING) servicewomen interviewed in our concurrent VA study.
