Pain and psychiatric comorbidities among two groups of Iraq- and Afghanistan-era Veterans

Kristin M. Phillips, PhD, et al.

This study aimed to (1) identify the prevalence and severity of pain and psychiatric comorbidities among Veterans who had been deployed during Operations Enduring Freedom (OEF), Iraqi Freedom (OIF), and New Dawn (OND) and (2) assess whether the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Polytrauma System of Care and OIF/OEF/OND registry reflect real differences among patients. Results confirmed the high prevalence of pain and concurrent mental health problems among personnel returning from military deployment, signifying the need for elaborate mental health screening and treatment for Veterans registering for VA healthcare.
