August 2010

Deployment Healthcare Track (DHCT) Information

The 2010 Deployment Healthcare Track's focus was on Service member-centered care for returning combat warriors and their families. The target audience is healthcare providers who are the first to assess and treat Service members: primary care and family practice providers, nurses, behavioral health, and physician assistants, as well as occupational and environmental medicine, clinical epidemiologists and health service researchers. Special areas of interest include:

  1. Improving, measuring and evaluating war-related care
  2. Fostering trust between Soldiers and healthcare providers (clinical risk communication)
  3. Developing best practices for war-related diseases: traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) , depression, grief, trauma, PTSD
  4. Improving continuity of care with coordinated aftercare between the DoD, the VA and other federal/private agencies
  5. Initiating new information systems and clinical automation for war-related care
