RMHC Assistant Professor Awarded VA Funding ($14, 291) Measuring Quality of Life in Veterans with Deployment Related PTSD (PI, Luther)
Many Veterans are at a higher risk for experiencing post-traumatic stress disorders (PTSD) and may also experience increased rates of unemployment compared to civilian populations. Unemployment is linked to decreased physical and mental health. Health-Related Quality of Life (HRQOL) has been identified as a key outcome of long-term health and well-being. PTSD is associated with reduced HRQOL. Tina Dillahunt-Aspillaga, PhD, CRC, CVE, CLCP, CBIST (Co-I), will provide subject matter expertise regarding employment and vocational rehabilitation of Veterans with deployment-related stress. Dr. Dillahunt will assist in data collection, analysis, and interpretation as well as report and manuscript preparation.
