    Using U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) records, this dissertation explores the staffing mix in substance use disorder treatment programs (SUDTPs) and the effectiveness of the current clinical practice guideline in reducing suicide risk associated with opioid therapy. The VA treats a large number of Veterans diagnosed with substance use disorders (SUDs) in four types of specialized SUDTPs at an annual cost of more than $350 million. The staffing mixes were not significantly different from 2001 to 2003, the years under review. However, given differences in treatment focus and provided services, the four types of SUDTPs may require different staffing mixes. We demonstrate how cost-effective staffing mixes for each type of VA SUDTP can be defined empirically. We derive prediction functions for benefits and costs based on patients' treatment outcomes at VA SUDTPs nationally from 2001 to 2003, and use them to formulate optimization problems to determine recommended staffing mixes that maximize net benefits per patient for four types of SUDTPs while conforming to limits of current practice. Compared to the actual staffing mixes in 2001-2003, the recommended staffing mixes would lower treatment costs while improving patient outcomes. We also introduce an approach to building a decision support system for staffing each type of SUDTP reflecting the dynamics of effectiveness and costs associated with the staffing changes. Compared to the actual staffing mixes, the staffing mixes suggested by the staffing decision support system are expected to treat significantly more Veteran patients under the existing staffing budget while improving patient outcomes. We also examine associations between adherence to guideline recommendations and the risk of suicide attempt based on Veterans Health Administration (VHA) records. Opioid therapy is often provided to reduce chronic pain in at-risk patients. Unfortunately, available opioid medications have been also used as a means for attempting suicide. In 2010, the VHA and the Department of Defense released a jointly developed clinical practice guideline (CPG) to reduce the risk of adverse events such as suicide attempt in patients prescribed opioids, primarily based on expert consensus. We conduct multivariate mixed-effects logistic regression analyses to define the associations between facility-level CPG adherence rates and risk of suicide attempt while controlling for the associations between individual-level delivery of CPG-based services and the risk of suicide attempt. Major findings include the following: suicide attempts were negatively associated with facility-level adherence rates for both consistent urine drug screenings and follow-up appointments, and were positively associated with facility-level risky sedative co-prescription rates.

    This is a single-authored book written by a world-class neuroradiologist with extensive experience in traumatic brain injury (TBI). It features six graphic-intense chapters depicting and expounding upon the complexity of TBI. Culled from nearly three decades of studying civilian TBI and five years of intensive study of TBI sustained from combat, terrorism, and natural disasters, this work is an exhaustive and innovative authority on the current approaches and applications of civilian and combat TBI. The text is sectored into six chapters based on pathophysiology, each augmented with numerous images and illustrations. The book gives special attention to neuroimaging, but is reinforced with relevant clinical correlation. This monograph is unique because it is first in class as an omnibus for the radiologist, neurologist, neurosurgeon, maxillofacial surgeon, emergency physician, pediatrician, ophthalmologist, and the rehabilitation team.

    "The goal of this Forum on Health and National Security was to address financial stress in the lives of servicemembers and identify knowledge gaps and opportunities for gaining new knowledge that can lead to new and improved intervention programs. Financial stress directly and indirectly affects servicemembers' mental and behavioral health as well as servicemember and family functioning. Understanding financial stress can aid in developing effective programs to mitigate this stress and help servicemembers and families in need. The Forum reviewed the complexity of defining financial stress and the interplay of financial stress in the "web" of life stressors that impact servicemembers and their families. The Forum brought together military and civilian leaders and scientists with expertise in risk and resilience, behavioral health, economics, models of stress behavior, and suicide to address the financial challenges faced by servicemembers and their families. Participants were challenged to develop new perspectives by synthesizing knowledge across diverse disciplines to better understand the complex issues of financial stress and associated life stressors, and risk and resilience factors moderating this stress. The Forum attendees also reviewed critical literature assembled from detailed searches, contributions by attendees as well as case studies and illustrations of the interactions of financial stress with life stressors and events. The Forum succeeded in identifying gaps in our knowledge and research recommendations to better understand financial stress and inform programmatic interventions for military servicemembers and their families."--Preface.

    This book is designed as an easy to read reference and practical guide to the management of combat extremity injuries, which account for a high percentage of the injuries sustained in recent and current conflicts. The surgical techniques appropriate to the full range of extremity injuries and some other frequent injuries, such as trauma to the spine and pelvis, are clearly described with the aid of helpful illustrations. In each chapter a bottom line up front approach is adopted, providing key messages first; a further important feature is the emphasis placed on case-based information and lessons learned from practice. Care has been taken to ensure that the advice provided is straightforward and in line with military clinical practice guidelines.

    "The two world wars played an important role in the evolution of plastic and maxillofacial surgery in the first half of the 20th century. This book is about four of the key figures involved. Sir Harold Gillies and Sir Archibald McIndoe were born in Dunedin; McIndoe and Rainsford Mowlem studied medicine at the University of Otago Medical School, and Henry Pickerill was foundation Dean of the University of Otago Dental School. The author describes how these surgeons revolutionised plastic surgery and the treatment of facial trauma, working on soldiers, fighter pilots and civilians disfigured by bombs, shrapnel and burns. Eventually Gillies et al. were supported by a vast surgical enterprise that included surgeons, dentists, anaesthetists, artists and photographers, nurses and orderlies. The text is fully illustrated with photos, drawings and case notes by the surgeons and war artists at military hospitals at Boulogne-sur-Mer, Aldershot and Sidcup in the First World War, and civilian hospitals at East Grinstead, Basingstoke and Hill End in the Second. The book includes a DVD of Rainsford Mowlem performing a variety of plastic operations in 1945. This book is a must for anyone interested in the history of medicine and the treatment of casualties in the two world wars"--From publisher.

    In 1746, Dr. John Buchanan, a recently retired medical officer in the British Army, produced a manuscript, 'Regimental Practice, or a Short History of Diseases common to His Majesties own Royal Regiment of Horse Guards when abroad (Commonly called the Blews).' Revised almost until the time of Buchananan's death in 1767, it was primarily based on the author's observations while surgeon to a cavalry regiment serving in Flanders 1742-1745 during the War of the Austrian Succession. It is presented here as an annotated modern edition of the text.

    This Forum on Health and National Security, directed to addressing stigma and barriers to care, brought together a diverse group of leaders in order to expand horizons on these issues of important national need in times of war, disaster and terrorism. The individuals represented national leaders, educators, researchers and health care planners across mental health, health care systems, military and disaster care and the specific issues of stigma and barriers to care. The goal was for individuals who did not usually talk with each other or even know of each other's work, to hear new perspectives and create a new vantage point on this difficult topic.

    From the stresses of repeated deployments to the difficulties of re-entry into civilian life, we are just beginning to understand how protracted conflicts, such as those in Iraq and Afghanistan, are affecting service members. Issues such as risky health behaviors and chemical dependence raise productivity concerns as they do with all organizations, but they also have a profound impact on the safety and readiness of troops--and by extension, the military as a whole--in life-or-death situations. Understanding Military Workforce Productivity cuts through the myths and misconceptions about the health and resilience of today's active-duty armed forces. This first-of-its-kind volume presents up-to-date findings across service branches in core health areas including illness and injury, alcohol and drug abuse, tobacco use, obesity, and mental health. The short- and long-term implications discussed relate to the quality of the lives of service members and their families, the quality and preparedness of the military as a workforce, and prevention and intervention efforts.

    In their efforts to utilize their medical skills and training in the service of their country, women physicians fought not one but two male-dominated professional hierarchies: the medical and the military establishments. In the process, they also contended with powerful social pressures and constraints. Throughout Women Doctors in War, authors Judith Bellafaire and Mercedes Graf focus on the medical careers, aspirations, and struggles of individual women, using personal stories to illustrate the unique professional and personal challenges female military physicians have faced. Military and medical historians and scholars in women's studies will discover a wealth of new information in this book.
