Abstract:
This paper reviews Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) in Veterans and military members primarily from Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF) and Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF). A literature review was conducted to explain symptom differentiation, treatments, and secondary health problems among Veterans with PTSD. This paper analyzed current literature and applied findings from the research to best nursing care recommendations for health care members that may not be knowledgeable about PTSD symptoms and needs of Veterans with PTSD when they are hospitalized in an acute care setting. With approximately 75% of Veterans seeking care outside of military based facilities, it is important to educate health care members on the evidence-based best care practices.
