What happened to study on military's brain injury assessment tool?
GovernmentExecutive.com published an interesting article last week that raised some serious questions about how the military decides which assessment tool they're going to use in combat situations. Sounds to me like something funny was going on with their latest study (results have never been published); maybe they didn't like the results? Here's an excerpt:
Senior Defense Department officials have stressed repeatedly in public they are doing everything they can to provide the best care possible to U.S. troops injured in Iraq and Afghanistan. But that might not be the case for the tens of thousands of troops who have experienced some form of brain injury.Read the complete article here. (It's kind of long but quite interesting.) And whatever is, or was, going on with that study, I certainly hope that those in charge keep the welfare of our service men and women at the forefront of their decisions. Cost-cutting or favoritism deserve no place in selecting the best assessment tool possible. Our troops are giving a lot; they have earned the best medical care this country can provide.
