Return to Productive Activity After Traumatic Brain Injury: Relationship with Measures of Disability, Handicap, and Community Integration

Abstract:
Return to productive activity (RTPA) is considered a major outcome marker for TBI. One hundred and five respondents from a cohort of 378 adults hospitalized at a Level I Trauma Center with TBI were studied to describe the rate of RTPA and associated factors. There was 67% RTPA. Factors found to be associated with successful RTPA were educational level, psychiatric history, violent mechanism of injury, discharge status after acute hospitalization, prior alcohol and drug use, and injury severity, as well as the Disability Rating Scale and the Community Integration Questionnaire at one year post-injury
