The Veterans Metrics Initiative: Linking Program Components to Post-Military Well-Being

The Veterans Metrics Initiative (TVMI) Study is a five-year research initiative of the Center for Public-Private Partnerships of the Henry M. Jackson Foundation for the Advancement of Military Medicine (HJF).  Multidisciplinary researchers will collaborate to develop evidence-based methods to identify and measure factors that improve transitioning veterans' long-term health and well-being outcomes.  The study began in April 2015 with three goals: to document veteran well-being in four key domains (mental and physical health, education and career vocation, finances, and social relationships); to describe programs used by veterans as they reintegrate into civilian life and to distill their components; and to examine any links between common program components and veteran well-being throughout the transition process.  From 2016 until 2019, the team will conduct the longitudinal survey portion of the study, which aims to retain and follow between 7,500 and 9,600 veterans from all military branches for a total of six assessments over the three-year period.  The study would create a data set and an instrument for identifying and measuring key program components tied to positive outcomes for veteran well-being.  The Chairman's Grant would support the survey research conducted during the third year of the TVMI Study.
