Woman Looking out of a Window

Also this week, a report was released by the Department of Veterans Affairs Inspector General which found that the VA is not providing the necessary standard of support and long-term follow-up assistance needed by veterans with TBI and their families.

The report, which was conducted at Senate Veterans Affairs Committee Chairman Daniel Akaka's (D-HI) request, found specifically; "While case management has improved, long-term case management is not uniformly provided for these patients, and significant needs remain unmet."

A copy of the report can be found at http://www.va.gov/oig/54/reports/VAOIG-08-01023-119.pdf.
