Project Title:

Shipboard Hazard and Defense II (SHAD II)
PIN: IOM-BSP-10-08        

Major Unit:

Institute of Medicine

Sub Unit: Board on the Health of Select Populations
Medical Follow-up Agency

RSO: Joellenbeck, Lois

Subject/Focus Area: Environment and Environmental Studies; Health and Medicine

Project Scope
An ad hoc committee of experts in conjunction with IOM's Medical Follow-up Agency (MFUA)  will conduct an epidemiological study comparing the health status of the SHAD  veterans with a comparison population. This study will build on knowledge gained from a prior study (Long-term Health Effects of Participation in Project SHAD, PIN# MFUA-H-02-04-A) conducted by MFUA  staff between 2003 and 2007. The SHAD II study will use the established SHAD participants list and the comparison population list of individuals determined from the prior study.

As part of the data collection process, the committee will plan and conduct an initial workshop to receive suggestions and input from SHAD Veterans about their experiences so that the study can be informed by new insights from this group.

Following the completion of the study, the Committee will author a short report summarizing the approach and findings of the study.  The MFUA staff expect to publish the results of the study as an individually-authored (or co-authored) publication.

If the results of this SHAD II study indicate a difference in outcome between the SHAD participants and the comparison population, or if the study finds new information that would warrant new research avenues, MFUA will be prepared to conduct additional research as appropriate.

This study is sponsored by the U.S. Veterans Administration and will conclude February 28, 2015.

Project Duration: 42 months
