Ethics approval and consent to participate
: Indiana University’s institutional review board (Protocol #: 1906545363) and the Richard L. Roudebush VA Medical Center’s Research and Development committee approved this study with an exempt status. The exempt status waived the need for a signed informed consent; veterans and stakeholders verbally consented to study participation. Verbal consent was considered appropriate for this study given that participants would be answering non-invasive questions regarding a planned program and there was minimal risk involved. Participants were provided with a study information sheet and the audio recording did not begin until each participant consented to participate. Had any issues arisen during consent (or at any point during the study), they would have been documented and the IRB would have been immediately notified. Participants were assigned identification numbers to protect their identity and maintain confidentiality and all transcripts were de-identified.
