The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has announced the launch of the Center for Compassionate Innovation (CCI), which will explore emerging therapies. Also, VA is accepting proposals to fulfill CCI's mission of finding innovative approaches to health care, which may support those Veterans who are unsuccessful with conventional treatment. Proposals may be submitted through the CCI website. CCI explores innovations in the health-care industry as well as innovative practices currently being piloted on a small scale within the Veterans Health Administration (VHA). CCI is primarily interested in innovations that address post-traumatic stress disorder, traumatic brain injury, chronic pain and suicidality but will consider other innovations.
