Medical research results often lead to changes in health care. The Deployment Health Clinical Center recently released a Clinician’s Corner article to highlight the most recent clinical guidelines for adults with posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
The guidelines feature the latest recommendations based on evidence spanning prevention, screening, assessment, diagnosis, treatment and clinical management. There are visual algorithms to use as quick references for acute stress reaction; assessment and diagnosis information for acute stress disorder and PTSD; and recommendations to help manage these disorders.
