Personalised medicine: a healing application within comorbid PTSD and mTBI military patient sample with a particular focus on special operators


Personalised medicine is replacing prototypical medical care. Personalised medicine focuses on enhancing patients’ functioning and preventing future negative impacts of both medical disease and psychological disorders, and unfolds uniquely for each individual. The military special forces community is a group at higher risk for physical trauma, for example, traumatic brain injuries, as well as psychosocial stressors and traumas associated with combat, high operational tempos and sleep deprivation. From a system’s cost–benefit perspective and resonating with community norms of resiliency, personalised medicine offers unique innovative treatments for special operators. In this article, we outline the successful applications of personalised medicine via the multidisciplinary treatment of special operators with comorbid conditions (primarily mild traumatic brain injury and post-traumatic stress disorder).
