Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to write a grant to fund a program that utilizes technology to enhance evidence-based treatment for Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF) and Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF) combat veterans with Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and mild Traumatic Brain Injury (mTBI). Technology in this case includes the portable technology of laptop computers, tablet computers, MP3 players, and/or smartphones. The target population in the project was the veterans of The Pathway Home, a residential treatment program for OIF/OEF veterans with PTSD. The Pathway Home serves a racially, educationally, and socioeconomically diverse population of male combat veterans of these recent conflicts. A search for funders included consultation with experts as well as Internet database searches. Ultimately, funding was pursued through an unsolicited invitation to a grant application from the Newman's Own Foundation. It was not required to submit this grant application, or secure funding, for successful completion of this project.
