Change in the department of veterans affairs : What should be done ?
Article abstract-Health care in the Department of Veterans Affairs is undergoing the most dramatic change since the era following World War II.
The Congress has supported the Undersecretary for Health in his guidance of this change.
Traditional hospital-based, specialty-focused care has given way to outpatient and primary care focused health care.
Administrative authority has been shifted to 22 Veterans Integrated Service Networks (VISNs).
Research goals are being reoriented, and neurology resident allocation is being reduced.
VA neurologists and neurology chairs must organize strong service lines in their own VA facilities and in their networks to provide care for veterans with neurologic diseases.
VA neurologists must also emphasize their role in principal care and increase their involvement in outcomes research.
