Description

Early reports of the rate of PTSD, and related health services use, among American soldiers who have served in the conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq *(operations Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom; called OEF/OIF) have been widely disseminated (e.g. Hodge et al., Milliken et al., 2007). Those reports focused on the results of a large, organized military screening program and related Department of Defense (DoD) health services use. However, PTSD may persist well after separation from military service. A recent RAND report found almost twice the risk of PTSD in discharge and retired OEF/OIF solders as in active-duty soldiers (Schell & Marshall, 2008). While estimates vary (Ramchand, et al., 2010), the rate of PTSD in OEF/OIF Veterans appears to be 15% or greater (Schnurr et al., 2010). As we approach 10 years of war, over 1.2 million soldiers have become eligible for VA services. Thanks in part to expanded VA eligibility for OEF/OIF Veterans, over 600,000 have used VA health services.

A body of literature studying VA health services utilization among OEF/OIF Veterans has developed, and documents patterns of service use for general medical and mental health care as well as efforts to understand barriers to care, stigma, and treatment preferences. Methods range from queries of national VA administrative data to the development of representative surveys, to the documentation of care processes on a microsystem level. This issue of PTSD Research Quarterly orients readers to this emerging area of the literature.
