LOW BACK PAIN MANAGEMENT (Non - Pharmaceutical)

The goal of this educational initiative is to provide clinicians with the most up-to-date evidence-based data,

recommendations, and strategies on how to safely and effectively utilize thermal therapy in the treatment of low back pain. It will include strategies to effectively educate and engage patients on the utilization of thermal therapy. By implementing education from this multidisciplinary curriculum providers will be able to make more appropriate management decisions and assist their patients in the safe and effective use of thermal therapy while optimizing their treatment of acute low back pain.    

PULMONARY HYPERTENSION

Pulmonary hypertension (PH) is a key contributor to cardio vascular morbidity and early mortality. PH is of increased concern for the veteran population due to a lack of epidemiological knowledge for military veteran patient populations and delay of appropriate care within the commercial healthcare system.

This webcast, led by Dr. Argula, provides an overview of PH and PAH, its related risks as associated with age, gender, ethnicity and Veteran status, in addition to its diagnostic and therapeutic complexities. 

LUPUS DISEASE

Recent studies are uncovering the correlation between PTSD and autoimmune disorders, specifically with Iraq and Afghanistan veterans.This webinar, led by Dr. Kamen, provides an overview of lupus, an autoimmune connective tissue disease. It discusses the associated risks in relation to age, gender, and ethnicity demographics, and highlights Veteran status in particular. Diagnostic and therapeutic complexities of lupus will also be addressed.

HOW HEALING WORKS

Primary determinants of health which involve social, environmental, lifestyle, and complementary medicine factors are often not integrated into routine practice, despite their heavy impact on well-being.
This talk incorporates scientific evidence to describe a systematic approach, called a HOPE (Healing Oriented Practice and Environments) visit, that helps patients tap into their inherent healing capacity.

DoD CLINICAL PRACTICE GUIDELINES FOR SUICIDE

Implementation of the evidence-based clinical practice guidelines for suicide is one strategy VHA has embraced to improve care by reducing variation in practice and systematizing “best practices”. Guidelines address patient cohorts, serve to reduce errors, and provide consistent quality of care and utilization of resources throughout and between the VA and DoD health care systems. Guidelines are also cornerstones for accountability and facilitate learning and the conduct of research. The VHA guidelines shared on this site are those endorsed by the VA/DoD Evidence Based Practice Work Group.

VETERANS AND COMMUNITY

MILITARY SEXUAL TRAUMA AND PTSD

After a traumatic event (i.e., combat, an assault, disaster, etc.) it's normal to be fearful, anxious or despondent.  However, if its been months since the traumatic event and you are not feeling better, you may have Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.  When you have PTSD, the world feels unsafe. You may have upsetting memories, feel on edge, or have trouble sleeping. You may also try to avoid things that remind you of your trauma — even things you used to enjoy. Listen to your fellow Veterans as they share their stories.
