Library of Research Articles on Veterans and CIH Therapies

Library of Research Articles on Veterans and CIH Therapies

January 2021 Edition

The following is the updated version of the VA Office of Patient Centered Care and Cultural Transformation’s (OPCC&CT) and VA Complementary and Integrative Health Evaluation Center (CIHEC) QUERI’s “Library of Research Articles on Veterans and Complementary and Integrative Health Therapies and Chiropractic Care”.

  1. Articles organized by type of CIH therapy, which include acupuncture, Battlefield Acupuncture, biofeedback, chiropractic care, guided imagery, clinical hypnosis/hypnotherapy, massage therapy, meditation (which includes Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction (MBSR), mindfulness (other than MBSR) and mantram repetition), Tai Chi/Qigong, and yoga.
  2. Articles organized by type of health outcome, which include pain, anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), substance/opioid abuse, stress and well-being, insomnia and sleep, suicide-related issues, and Veteran caregiver well-being and VA employee well-being.

The Library provides the citation (with links to either the actual article or to its page in PubMed) as well as the abstract, if available, for papers published beginning in 2010. Although every attempt was made to include all relevant studies conducted, it is possible we missed some and will gladly include additional studies when found. The Library will be updated annually, with the next update available in January 2022. It can be found at the OPCC&CT website at https://www.va.gov/WHOLEHEALTH/professional-resources/clinician-tools/Evidence-Based-Research.asp and the CIHEC QUERI website at https://www.hsrd.research.va.gov/centers/cshiip.cfm.
