  1. Moderators please move this to where it should be if its in the wrong place. I just got back from the War Related Illness and Injury Study Center (WRIISC) in Palo Alto Ca. I am planning on giving everyone a full review and outline of what happens there from a patient standpoint. While this outline is specific to Palo Alto I am fairly confident that the locations in New Jersey and DC are roughly the same. When I was setup to go down there I tried in vain to find much information on the program and I told myself I would provide a detailed account of how things go when I got done. This will probably be a pretty long account of the program so it might cover a few posts here. And if you have any question please feel free to ask I will do my best to answer them. Criteria for acceptance into the WRIISC Your VA Primary Care Provider (PCP), Patient Aligned Care Team (PACT), post-deployment health champion, or Environmental health provider may request an Inter facility consult for Veterans with possible deployment-related health conditions who have: complex health conditions and no known cause (medically unexplained symptoms-MUS) had many tests and/or treatment with appropriate follow-up and with little to no symptom improvement possible deployment-related environmental exposures problems or concerns Referral Process Referrals to the WRIISC program may be made by the Veteran’s VA Primary Care Provider (PCP), Patient Aligned Care Team (PACT), post-deployment health champion, or Environmental health provider and are done using the Inter Facility Consult (IFC) process in Computerized Patient Record System (CPRS). Click here for detailed instructions. VA Providers: Referrals are triaged to the appropriate regional WRIISC based on VISN location: CA WRIISC: VISNs 18, 19, 20, 21, 22 DC WRIISC: VISNs 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 16, 17 NJ WRIISC: VISNs 1, 2, 3, 4, 10, 11, 12, 15, 23
