This is a subcontract that will provide implementation research support for the National Center for PTSD, Dissemination & Training Division, VA Palo Alto Health Care System.
Professor Elisa Borah will advise on (1) refining the implementation needs assessment process, (2) refining the tailored intervention package, and (3) finalization of evaluation measures and data extracts. She will participate in needs assessment interviews at military treatment facilities selected to be part of the study as well as intervention tailoring, assist in recruiting and managing relationships with project sites, and conduct study methods with site visits. Borah will also participate in analysis and interpretation of findings.
The project will develop a toolkit that can be used to support implementation of other behavioral health interventions in military healthcare settings.
