Physical Symptoms and Mental Health: Assessment, Evaluation and Management of Common Symptoms

Feb. 26, 2015, 1-2:30 p.m. (ET)

Common physical symptoms such as pain, fatigue, insomnia and gastrointestinal complaints account for half of all outpatient visits. However, numerous studies reveal that diagnostic test results are often normal and the symptoms remain unexplained. Depression and anxiety often accompany physical symptoms in which case co-management of both physical and psychological conditions is important. Understanding the epidemiology, diagnostic evaluation and clinical management of common physical symptoms can benefit both physical and psychological health.

Traumatic Brain Injury Educational Forum: Best Practices and Current Research

According to the Defense and Veterans Brain Injury Center (DVBIC), 18,564 service members sustained a traumatic brain injury (TBI) in the first three quarters of 2014. The classification of mild TBI accounts for more than 80 percent of reported TBI to DVBIC. The vast majority of TBIs sustained are in a non-deployed setting in training exercises, motor vehicle accidents, and sports and leisure activities. These injuries directly affect the health and safety of individual service members and subsequently the level of unit readiness and troop retention.
