A further research to be conducted is being called for by the Institute of Medicine, a recent report unveils, so that effectiveness of PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) treatments can be analyzed.
The recommendations were made on Friday after finding that some patients are not being benefitted much instead of availability of promising treatments. While sometimes it is because of their fear of their seeing their careers at risk, the other times, they fail to recognize a long-term benefitting cure.
The Institute members have found that 2.6 millions of service members posted to Iraq and Afghanistan often tend to suffer the disease symptoms. Almost, 13 to 20% of them become the victims of the illness at some stage or the other.
Also, the health departments do not pay attention to what treatments are being used. It has been found that the Defense Department, responsible for giving care to active members as well as the Department of Veterans Affairs has been failing to keep tracks.
"There hasn't been as much premium placed on tracking than there has been on implementing treatment”, said Chairman Sandro Galea. Less than half often do not get a treatment, thus, it is being suggested by experts that each soldier should go for a screening test once each year.
