Views of Veterans, Military Family Members, and Students on Healthcare Gaps and Training Needs: Our initial research has been focused on informing our training and curriculum development.
To that end, in May 2013, we conducted six focus groups with the primary goal of obtaining input on needs/gaps in service delivery and training from key stakeholders (Veterans, family members, students) to inform our student training and curriculum development.
Results of the focus groups with veterans and family members were published in the journal, Military Behavioral Health, in January 2015 (PI: Dr. Butler). Results of the focus groups with students (both social work and nursing) were published in the Journal of Military and Veterans' Health, in the Fall of 2015 (PI: Dr. Butler).
Dog Tags Niagara: This project examined some of the benefits for veterans of rehabilitating dogs (PI: Dr. Nochajski). An article based on initial findings is currently in press.
Our future research will focus on issues related to Veterans and/or military family members. See our current research projects.
