Tuscaloosa VA Medical Center


Vocational Rehabilitation Research Study

TVAMC seeking male and female veteran volunteers for a research study that compares two different methods of vocational rehabilitation in order to evaluate which method works better to get veterans with PTSD back to work.

To qualify for the study you need to be:
‚Äʬ†Ages 19-60
‚Äʬ†Diagnosed with PTSD
‚Äʬ†Currently unemployed but interested in returning to work

What is PTSD?
PTSD is characterized by recurrent and distressing memories, nightmares, or flashbacks following a life-threatening traumatic event.  PTSD is also accompanied by significant avoidance, anxiety, and increased fear or worry about one’s safety.
If you are interested in being part of this study, you will be asked to attend an initial interview at the Tuscaloosa VA Medical Center, in Tuscaloosa, AL. (you must live within 100 miles of this medical center). If you qualify for the study, you will be asked to attend eight additional assessment interviews over a 12 month period.  A participation fee will be provided to offset the inconvenience of attending these assessment visits.
If you are interested, please call Dr. Blansett at (205) 554-2000, ext. 3627.
