Workgroup on Intervention with Combat Injured Families Proceedings

The Workgroup’s primary objective, which was met, was to develop and disseminate a set of core Principles of Caring for Combat Injured Families and Children (see appendix). These principles would serve to guide simultaneous endeavors of scientific research and evaluation, and clinical interventions to mitigate family distress and dysfunction, and to improve communication around the injury within and between the healthcare, family and community settings. Other products were to include an edited transcript (attached), an Executive Summary, and a scholarly article initiating a scientific community dedicated to achieving the highest level of care for our nation’s combat injured families and children.
