Prediction of Long-Term Patient Outcome Based on Pre-Injury Family Environment

Abstract:
The purpose of the current study is to determine is the pre-injury family environment is predictive of the outcome of persons with TBI at 1 year after injury. Information on the pre-injury family environment, including emotional distress, coping, family systems functioning, and social support, will be collected within 2 weeks of admission to inpatient rehabilitation. Information on the outcome of persons with injury will be collected at 1 year post-injury. Regression models will be constructed to predict outcome from demographic characteristics, injury characteristics, and the pre-injury family environment.
