Conducting Research with Women Veterans
Conducting Research with Women Veterans Author(s):

Dawne Vogt, PhD


As the number of women accessing VA health care has increased, so has recognition of the importance of conducting research with women Veterans. Until recently, little attention has been devoted to issues specific to this subpopulation of Veterans. This course addresses the opportunities and challenges associated with conducting research with women Veterans. It provides concrete suggestions for study recruitment, research design, analysis, and reporting results with this population.

This online course takes 45 minutes to complete and offers resources for both VA and non-VA researchers.
