CLINICAL PRACTICE GUIDELINES The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA)/Department of Defense (DOD) clinical practice guidelines (CPGs) are recommendations that are made to VA/DOD healthcare providers regarding their approaches to treatment of a variety of medical conditions. They are based on the best available clinical evidence and are designed to achieve the most desirable outcomes based on a variety of clinical situations. In general, CPGs have been defined as "systematically developed… 
Using patient-reported outcomes to understand the effectiveness of guideline-concordant care for post-traumatic stress disorder in clinical practice.
TLDR
Although available medical records-based variables were generally insufficient to predict improvement trajectory, this study did indicate that men have lower odds of substantial improvement than women.
Updated clinical practice guidelines for concussion/mild traumatic brain injury and persistent symptoms
TLDR
A modified Delphi process was used to create 96 recommendations addressing the diagnosis and management of mTBI and persistent symptoms, including post-traumatic headache, sleep disturbances, mental health disorders, cognitive difficulties, vestibular and vision dysfunction, fatigue and return to activity/work/school.
"Do you expect me to receive PTSD care in a setting where most of the other patients remind me of the perpetrator?": Home-based telemedicine to address barriers to care unique to military sexual trauma and veterans affairs hospitals.
TLDR
It is hypothesized that based on intent-to-treat analyses, HBT delivery of PE will be more effective than SD at improving both clinical and quality of life outcomes at post, 3-, and 6-month follow-up.
Gender Differences in Prescribing Among Veterans Diagnosed with Posttraumatic Stress Disorder
TLDR
A consistent pattern of increased prescribing of psychotropic medications among women with PTSD was seen compared to men, and prescribing frequency for benzodiazepines showed a marked gender difference with a steady increase for women despite guideline recommendations against use and a decrease for men.
Evaluating transdiagnostic treatment for distress and impairment in veterans: a multi-site randomized controlled trial of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.
TLDR
An ongoing multi-site randomized clinical trial of ACT as compared to a psychotherapy control is described, which indicates that transdiagnostic treatment - treatment that applies to more than one diagnosis - may be an efficient approach for veterans with high levels of comorbidity.
The Implementation and Testing of a Referral Management System to Address Barriers to Treatment Seeking Among Primary Care Veterans With PTSD
TLDR
A hybrid effectiveness-implementation study of a referral management system, called coordinated and alternative pathway to engagement (CAPE), to address barriers to receiving evidence-based treatment for PTSD and results indicated CAPE clinic patients were significantly more likely to engage in psychotherapy for posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
Moving Effective Treatment for Posttraumatic Stress Disorder to Primary Care: A Randomized Controlled Trial With Active Duty Military
TLDR
Prolonged Exposure for Primary Care delivered in integrated primary care is effective for the treatment of PTSD and co-occurring symptoms and may help reduce barriers and stigma found in specialty care settings.
Clinicians’ Perception of Patient Readiness for Treatment: An Emerging Theme in Implementation Science?
TLDR
Clinician perception of patient readiness may be important to the uptake of EBPs and should be considered in mental health implementation work.
A randomized controlled dismantling trial of post-workshop consultation strategies to increase effectiveness and fidelity to an evidence-based psychotherapy for Posttraumatic stress disorder
TLDR
Whether clinicians receiving post-workshop support will deliver CPT with greater fidelity and have improved patient outcomes and an evidence-based model of clinical consultation will be developed, with the ultimate goal of informing policy and influencing best practice in clinical consultation.
Health service utilization before and after evidence-based treatment for PTSD.
TLDR
Investigating PE as it relates to actual tracked mental health service utilization in an urban VA medical center suggests that expanding access to PE can increase access to mental health services in general by decreasing ongoing demand for specialty care clinical services.

Clinical practice guidelines we can trust
TLDR
Clinical Practice Guidelines The authors Can Trust shows how clinical practice guidelines can enhance clinician and patient decision-making by translating complex scientific research findings into recommendations for clinical practice that are relevant to the individual patient encounter, instead of implementing a one size fits all approach to patient care.
