Trauma recovery programs

The Department of Veterans’ Affairs funds Trauma Recovery Programs – PTSD in hospitals across Australia. These programs are required to meet DVA’s National accreditation Standards for Trauma Recovery Programs – PTSD (2015). These standards provide a framework for ensuring that hospitals provide high quality evidenced based treatment for veterans and former serving members of the ADF who have PTSD. The standards address the key components of quality service provision:

  • Clinical governance
  • Access and targeting
  • Veterans’ rights and responsibilities
  • Clinical pathways
  • Treatment
  • Clinical data collection.

If you are interested in finding out more about the programs, please contact one of the hospitals listed below in your state or territory.
