Those advances in theater medicine, as with most gains involving military medical research, relied on collaboration - between branches of service, between allied forces and between military and industry, Doll said.

"It's all about our discovery, development and deliver" of products to better care for service members, to make them more resilient in whatever environment they operate and, for the severely wounded, to restore quality of life as best as possible through timely care and rehabilitation, Doll said.
...
For Doll, the 19 percent represents "a mandate to improve our delivery of care. Though increasing "survivability in the face of severe wounds is a challenge," he said, for researchers it must remain "a very high priority."
Spending on military medical research, including combat casualty care and traumatic brain injury treatment, has leveled off. DoD's annual medical research budget, to include spending on medical information technology, has averaged $1.37 billion over the last five years.
Given tighter budgets, it's increasingly important that Army, Navy, Air Force and outside partners not move separately down the same research paths, unaware of progress made elsewhere. Doll's RDA is to prevent such overlaps as a "shared services" directorate under the two-year-old Defense Health Agency. It exists to coordinate research that benefits any military member while acknowledging that unique expertise resides in each service.
"The RDA is all about support to the services" in advancing collaborative, innovative research, he said.

Those advances in theater medicine, as with most gains involving military medical research, relied on collaboration - between branches of service, between allied forces and between military and industry, Doll said.
To reinforce the need to share life-saving and health-inducing ideas, the Defense Health Agency last month hosted a four-day Military Health System Research Symposium in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. Government and private sector experts discussed continuing progress against signature wounds of recent wars, infectious diseases and operational hazards.
"It's all about our discovery, development and deliver" of products to better care for service members, to make them more resilient in whatever environment they operate and, for the severely wounded, to restore quality of life as best as possible through timely care and rehabilitation, Doll said.

Spending on military medical research, including combat casualty care and traumatic brain injury treatment, has leveled off. DoD's annual medical research budget, to include spending on medical information technology, has averaged $1.37 billion over the last five years.
Given tighter budgets, it's increasingly important that Army, Navy, Air Force and outside partners not move separately down the same research paths, unaware of progress made elsewhere. Doll's RDA is to prevent such overlaps as a "shared services" directorate under the two-year-old Defense Health Agency. It exists to coordinate research that benefits any military member while acknowledging that unique expertise resides in each service.
"The RDA is all about support to the services" in advancing collaborative, innovative research, he said. But to do so better, "we agree among the services there are certain practices we can consolidate."
RDA also is developing a database of research across defense components "to make sure that everybody knows what everybody is doing," Doll said. He compared it to a catalogue of expenditures and results that National Institutes of Health publishes for all NIH-funded projects.
"The economies of scale that come from this constant awareness of products being developed - and where the experts are - is something we are committed to enhancing" to improve care delivery to ill or injured and to assist warrior in achieving optimal performance in any mission environment.
"We understand that every service has certain unique areas" of expertise such as undersea medicine for Navy. In those areas "we're not looking to do anything but assist," Doll said. "They do it well."
But every member bleeds, he said. So his directorate is coordinating research to address those deaths from hemorrhaging.
"To the extent we have those types of projects, beneficial to all the services, we look to fund those and to do so consistent with the priorities that we review every year," Doll said. The U.S. military estimates that more than 300,000 service members have suffered some traumatic brain injury since 2001. About 82 percent of those cases are categorized as mild.
...
"That's the broad focus on all these topics: How does this map back to individuals on the frontline who are performing the mission," Doll said.
The U.S. military "does not lay claim to the best in its own environment of research and development. But what it does do very well, through organizations like NATO or individual nation relationships…is to look for collaboration, look for areas of expertise resident in countries that we can partner with," Doll said.
For example, the efforts of Scandinavian countries to optimize performance in cold-weather environments "become something we can learn from them and, together, move forward."
Given the number and severity of injuries in Iraq and Afghanistan, however, the U.S. military has led in developing tourniquets, medical evacuation techniques and critical refinements to trauma care.
As wounded "are moved back from the site of injury," Doll said, "their care is improving in terms of technology and expertise brought to bear" at every stage.

Navy Rear Admiral Bruce Doll, head of the Defense Health Agency (DHA) Research, Development and Acquisition Directorate (RDA), retired on Nov. 20.
Under his leadership, RDA has been responsible for overseeing the design, prioritization and integration of medical research, development and acquisition programs across the continuum of care within the medical research community.
Doll expressed pride with what the RDA has been able to accomplish during his tenure.
"With the DHA's growth to full operational capability, we have made noteworthy progress in our liaisons with the Department of Veterans Affairs, international groups through global engagement, and being able to heighten the visibility of our science and technology products, and projects that we intend to see become products," he said. "We've been fortunate to be able to contribute to research into early in-theater management of traumatic brain injury and en route analgesic use for relieving pain in combat settings, which are helping to advance the state of combat casualty care in the Military Health System. RDA has always been focused on our operational forces, so we always ask ourselves, 'What are we doing for first response care?' when a Soldier, Sailor or Airman is injured."
Doll's military career began in 1982 as an assistant dental officer at the Naval Branch Dental Clinic, China Lake, California. A year later, Doll was assigned to 1st Force Service Support Group, Camp Pendleton, California, as the officer-in-charge, 1st Battalion Service Support Group. He served as dental department head on the USS Juneau from 1985 to 1987. His other duty stops include Periodontics department head and training officer at the dental clinic, U S Naval Academy, Annapolis, Maryland; the Navy Reserve Bureau of Medicine and Surgery 106, Washington, D.C.; the 14th Dental Company, Fort Dix, New Jersey; the Navy Reserve OHSU National Naval Medical Center Bethesda; and the U.S. Army Medical Research and Material Command, Fort Detrick, Maryland.
