GP Survey: Providing Veterans with Best Practice Treatment for Common Mental Health Issues

The Department of Veterans’ Affairs is seeking to understand the practice of general practitioners who work with veterans, in order to support them in providing veterans with best practice treatment for common mental health issues.

Phoenix Australia – Centre for Posttraumatic Mental Health has been contracted by DVA to assist them with this project. An important aspect of the project is to seek information from general practitioners about their experience in assessing and treating veterans with mental health disorders. System and practitioner barriers to delivering evidence-based practice and to developing the required knowledge and skills to treat veterans with mental health issues will also be examined.

With these objectives in mind we have developed an online practitioner survey and would very much appreciate it if you would tell us about your experience, knowledge and skills in using evidence-based practices for treating common mental health issues in the veteran population.

The survey is open for completion February 1st to March 10th 2016.
