A Prospective Controlled Study of Integrated Cognitive-Psychosocial Rehabilitation with ‘Standard' Neurorehabilitation for Persons with Traumatic Brain Injury.
Neuropsychological rehabilitation of persons with traumatic brain injury may best be achieved through a comprehensive, holistic approach to the treatment of cognitive, emotional, and functional impairments and disability. Participants with TBI who are recruited from clinical and community referrals will be randomly assigned to received either an intensive-holistic program of cognitive rehabilitation or a
"standard" neurorehabilitation program. The primary outcome measure is the number of subjects demonstrating clinically significant changes in community integrations after treatment. This study will also incorporate measures of neuropsychological functioning and subjective well-being as indicators of rehabilitation outcome.
