Recovering Service-Members & Veterans : Assessments of Care & Benefits Management Hardback
Edited by Ira Wachtel, Gina Nutting
Deficiencies exposed at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in 2007 served as a catalyst compelling the Departments of Defense (DoD) and Veterans Affairs (VA) to address a host of problems for wounded, ill, and injured service-members and veterans as they navigate through the recovery care continuum.
This continuum extends from acute medical treatment and stabilization, through rehabilitation to reintegration, either back to active duty or to the civilian community as a veteran.
In spite of 5 years of departmental efforts, recovering service-members and veterans are still facing problems with this process and may not be getting the services they need.
This book provides an overview and assessment of the care and benefit management system for recovering service-members and veterans.
