HSR&D's post-deployment health portfolio addresses issues related to the reintegration of Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom veterans, including outcomes of short-term rehabilitation, adjustments to returning to civilian life, risk and resilience factors, epidemiological and measurement studies related to polytrauma, screening instruments for early problem identification, access to care, and studies related to combat-related neurotrauma, including cervical spinal cord injury and sensory loss. Studies related to post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) also are included in this portfolio. Post-deployment health is an HSR&D priority as described in the current Program Announcement of HSR&D Priorities.
