About this title


This unique ring-bound book provides a reproduction of the Veterans Administration (VA) Independent Study Course on Caring for War Wounded, released in March 2003 as part of the Veterans Health Initiative. "On 20 March 2003, the drive to free the people of Iraq from the tyranny of Saddam Hussein started when President George Bush gave the order that began "Operation Iraqi Freedom". Many health care providers are engaged in the treatment of U.S. military members involved in "Operation Iraqi Freedom". As with all previous wars where U.S. service men and women have participated, there will be casualties. Many of these casualties will come to the VA for continuing care. All VA clinicians should have an understanding of the experiences and exposures of these most recent of America's combat veterans. This independent study module is being released as a part of the Veterans Health Initiative (VHI). The VHI is a comprehensive program of continuing education that recognizes the connection between certain health effects and military service and emphasizes better military medical histories for those wounded during Gulf War II. After completing this independent study, participants will be able to: define the VA/DoD Contingency Back-Up System, list the environmental and endemic hazards of deployment to Southwest Asia, explain the purpose of DoD Pre-Deployment screening and the Force Health Protection Program, list the VA health care benefits after combat deployment, describe the specific combat related injuries, including wounds from traditional weapons and high-velocity weapons, identify injuries associated with chemical warfare agents, identify injuries associated with pesticide agents, identify injuries associated with biological warfare agents, identify injuries associated with radiological warfare, explain the effect of combat on mental health, describe the family support programs for veterans and their families.
