Title: MISSION-Vet HUD VASH Implementation Study
Dates: 10/1/2011 - 9/1/2015
Funder: Veterans Administration
PI: David Smelson, Psy.D.
Abstract: This project tests an implementation platform – Getting to Outcomes (GTO) – designed to assist in the delivery of an evidence based intervention (MISSION-VET) for Veterans with co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders in the HUD-VASH program. The proposed study serves a dual function of comparing implementation of the MISSION-Vet currently being planned through the VA Office of Patient Care Services to an enhanced implementation approach using the GTO model. The proposed research will help to guide policy and practice about the most effective methods to ensure implementation of MISSION-Vet with fidelity and effectiveness.
