Violence-Related Injury as a Risk factor: TBI Outcome and Community Integration in Rural Populations

Abstract:
Violent injury is the second leading cause of TBI among the current Model Systems subjects, with approximately 30% of persons in the MS National Data set having injuries resulting from acts of violence. Persons with violent etiology of TBI are assumed to have particular rehabilitation needs and rehabilitation outcomes have not been adequately understood. Factors such as substance abuse, financial resources, and social support can strongly influence rehabilitation outcome, but there has been a paucity of research on how these factors affect outcome among person with violence-related TBI. The need is even more acute for rural community members with violence-related TBI, because limited transportation and community resources may further complicate the course of community integration
