Recommendations for Research on the Health of Military Women: Bibliographies NATIONAL ACADEMY PRESS 2101 Constitution Avenue, N.W. Washington, DC 20418 NOTICE: The project that is the subject of the report Recommendations for Research on the Health of Military Women was approved by the Governing Board of the National Research Council, whose members are drawn from the councils of the National Academy of Sciences, the National Academy of Engineering, and the Institute of Medicine. The members of the committee responsible for this report were chosen for their special competences and with regard for appropriate balance. The report to which this volume is an addendum, Recommendations for Research on the Health of Military Women, has been reviewed by a group other than the authors according to procedures approved by a Report Review Committee consisting of members of the National Academy of Sciences, the National Academy of Engineering, and the Institute of Medicine. The current volume of bibliographies was not subject to report review. The Institute of Medicine was chartered in 1970 by the National Academy of Sciences to enlist distinguished members of the appropriate professions in the examination of policy matters pertaining to the health of the public. In this, the Institute acts under both the Academy's 1863 congressional charter responsibility to be an adviser to the federal government and its own initiative in identifying issues of medical care, research, and education. Dr. Kenneth I. Shine is president of the Institute of Medicine. Support for this project was provided by the United States Army Medical Research and Materiel Command Contract No. DAMD17-95-1-5024.

Recommendations for Research on the Health of Military Women: Bibliographies Preface This set of bibliographies was prepared to accompany the report Recommendations for Research on the Health of Military Women (Institute of Medicine, 1995).1 That report is based on a study conducted by the Committee on Defense Women's Health Research of the Institute of Medicine on behalf of the U.S. Army Medical Research and Materiel Command (the Command), which manages the Defense Women's Health Research Program (DWHRP). DWHRP was established in FY 1994 to support research aimed at addressing the health-related needs of military women. Congress provided $40 million to the Department of Defense (DoD) in both FY 1994 and FY 1995, with the promise of additional funding in subsequent years, for intramural and extramural research relevant to the goals of the DWHRP. Those goals relate to mission readiness, deployment, and training. The Command asked the Institute of Medicine for guidance on the use of appropriations for DWHRP. Particular attention was to be directed toward such topics as psychological stressors, physiological stressors, nutritional status, occupational safety issues, design of equipment and clothing, and special health care needs—all as related to servicewomen in training or deployment situations. The Institute of Medicine appointed a 19-member committee (1) to identify gaps and strengths in past and current research relating to the health and performance of military women, and (2) to provide guidance on establishing research funding priorities. With guidance from the committee, the study staff conducted an extensive search of relevant studies from the published literature and from government reports of currently funded research. The committee reviewed the extensive bibliographies with available abstracts and used a deliberative process and collective expert opinion to develop its recommendations. The broad scope of the searching resulted in retrieval of more than 5,700 citations of published works and 2,600 citations for current research. Citations that were obviously not relevant to the study were deleted by project staff. At the conclusion of the study, the database covering published works contained more than 2,100 references to relevant research on women's health, and the database covering current research contained more than 1,100 references. This volume lists those references. Chapter 1 outlines the search terms and online databases used to locate relevant articles and studies. Chapter 2 is divided into two parts. Part A includes references to published literature from the civilian databases, and Part B includes references obtained through the Defense Technical Information Center's Defense Research, Development, Testing, and Evaluation Online System (DROLS). Chapter 3 is also divided into two parts. Part A provides a listing of relevant research in progress, excluding that funded by the Defense Women's Health 1   For ordering information about the report itself and about the published and electronic versions of this book of bibliographies, see the verso title page of this book.

Part B covers the intramural research funded with FY 1994 appropriations by the Defense Women's Health Research Program.2 For both published and current research, citations were generally omitted if they covered health care problems that make servicewomen ineligible for deployment. Examples include chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, myocardial infarction, human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection, and diabetes mellitus. Many studies that dealt with the prevention of chronic diseases were included because of their relevance to the long-term health of military women. It is hoped that potential investigators, current investigators, and Armed Forces practitioners will benefit from these bibliographies. Because of the large number of databases searched, these listings include studies that might be missed by routine searching and that might provide leads for other searches. The topical bibliographic listings provide a convenient starting point for a targeted, critical review of the literature. The topical listings of current research can stimulate communication among investigators with related interests. Review of the combination of published works and work in progress can suggest further aspects of research that have been ignored or require more attention. The electronic version of Recommendations for Research on the Health of Military Women: Bibliographies provides great flexibility in use of the references. Reference Institute of Medicine.
