520 |a United States (U.S.) Veterans Affairs (VA) and Department of Defense (DoD) healthcare facilities are increasingly serving a large population of Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom (OEF/OIF) veterans who have sustained traumatic brain injury (TBI), suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), or have both a history of TBI and current PTSD (TBI/PTSD). Current evidence-based practices to screen, diagnose, prospectively evaluate, and treat mTBI symptoms or PTSD may be less accurate or effective if and when these conditions co-occur. Thus, there is a need to develop an evidence base to identify best practices to define, diagnose, evaluate, and manage patients with mTBI/PTSD, particularly in U.S. veterans of OEF/OIF.
