About the Thematic Series
Modern medicine and scientific research owe a special debt to the care and well-being of service personnel who endure sometimes multiple deployments in times of war and conflict. The intense nature of violent conflict puts these populations at high risk for both acute and chronic adverse patient-related physical and mental health outcomes affecting long-term coping and functioning.
Some areas of interest include patient-related outcomes associated with:
- non-drug PTSD treatments (including EFT, EMDR, mindfulness, exercise prescription)
- use of buprenorphine or other strategies for opioid dependence / addiction in this population.
The journal Editors are seeking original research and review article submissions for an upcoming Thematic Series on “Veterans and military patient-related health outcomes”. Research studies to identify and measure
clinically relevant outcomes cross-sectionally and longitudinally, as well as studies to identify the effectiveness of interventions to improve patient-related outcomes in this population are welcomed. Authors should follow the reporting guidelines on EQUATOR network appropriate for their study design.
The deadline for submission of manuscripts is April 30th, 2018.
