Podcast 171: PTSD Treatment Effects Remain Largely Unmeasured By the Military and the VA

(3 votes, average: 2.67 out of 5)

Running time: 10 minutes

The Institute of Medicine’s report on treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder finds that active military and veterans with PTSD aren’t always getting evidence-based treatments. And when those treatments are used, they’re too often not used according to protocols and the results aren’t measured. The upshot? The agencies with responsibility for treating PTSD don’t know whether they’re doing their patients any good.
