UCI study is first to explore veterans’ grief, an overlooked toll of war

University of California, Irvine

Irvine, Calif., Nov. 6, 2019 — Grief in veterans of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq has been as largely overlooked as post-traumatic stress disorder in the aftermath of the Vietnam War. A University of California, Irvine study, published online in the journal Social Science & Medicine, is the first to focus on veterans’ grief over the loss of a comrade to combat or suicide and examine whether the mode of death is associated with their responses.

Newswise: VA Investigates Impact of Opioids, Sedatives on Veterans

VA Investigates Impact of Opioids, Sedatives on Veterans

Rutgers University-New Brunswick

Nearly 20 veterans kill themselves each day in the United States, a statistic that has led the Department of Veterans Affairs to make suicide prevention its highest priority and to recognize the risks from the simultaneous use of opioids and benzodiazepines. To tackle the issue, the VA asked the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine to develop protocols for a study that would use existing records to evaluate the best approaches to opioid treatment in veterans taking benzodiazepines.
