Female Veterans Who Experience MST May Live With PTSD For Years.

Medscape (11/10, Brown) reported, “Female veterans who experience military sexual trauma (MST) often find it difficult to seek help; even with treatment, they can live with the symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) for years, according to a presentation” given at the American Psychiatric Nurses Association 26th Annual Conference held last month. “Ursula Kelly, PhD, ANP-BC, PMHNP-BC, assistant professor at the Emory University School of Nursing and a nurse scientist at Atlanta Veterans Affairs (VA) Medical Center in Georgia, works with female veterans who have experienced MST.” Medscape Medical News interviewed Kelly, who is “currently conducting research on factors that influence the ability of these women to seek treatment for PTSD.”
