Clinical Services

  • The War Related Illness and Injury Study Center (WRIISC) is a tertiary, post-deployment, care center that partners with VA referring providers and their health care teams to support the care of Veterans. The WRIISC is part of VA’s Health Outcomes Military Exposures office, (formerly Post Deployment Health Services).
  • WRIISC clinical services include e-consults, comprehensive multi-disciplinary evaluations, environmental exposure assessments, and integrative health and wellness programs.  Every WRIISC consult receives an E-Consult which helps to outline the next steps in the Veteran’s care plan and may include additional WRIISC services like comprehensive multi-disciplinary evaluations, environmental exposure assessments and/or integrative health and wellness services. 
  • WRIISC clinical evaluations are primarily conducted through tele-health as WRIISC sees Veterans from VA centers across the country.  In rare instances, on-site evaluations may be done.  WRIISC comprehensive multi-disciplinary evaluations are second opinion clinical consultations for Combat, Deployed Veterans who have chronic, medically unexplained symptoms lasting greater than six months, which persist despite local workups and trials of appropriate treatments. WRIISC also provides education, risk communication, and conducts research.
