Early Cognitive Status and Productivity Outcome Following Traumatic Brain Injury

Abstract:
To evaluate the contribution of early cognitive assessment to prediction of productivity outcome after traumatic brain injury (TBI) adjusted for severity of injury, demographic factors, and pre-injury employment status. Design: Inception cohort. Setting: Six inpatient brain injury rehabilitation programs. Participants: 388 adults with TBI whose post-traumatic amnesia resolved prior to discharge from inpatient rehabilitation. Results: Multiple logistic regression analysis revealed that pre-injury productivity status, duration of post-traumatic amnesia, education level, and early cognitive status each made significant, independent contributions to prediction of productivity status at follow-up. Conclusions: Findings support the utility of early cognitive assessment using neuropsychological tests
