These papers show that long-stay inpatient PTSD programs provide treatment that is quite different from other programs but that they are neither as effective, from a psychometric perspective, nor as helpful, from the veterans'subjective perspective, as has been expected.
VA treatment of PTSD is changing its focus and is being influenced by three distinct societal forces, in addition to data from studies like these :
(1) the continuing effort of American society to come to terms with its Vietnam War experience ;
(2) the crisis of U.S. health care costs ;
and (3) the emergence of a movement to « re-invent » government and to increase public accountability through performance data.
