Ethnic Group Response Differences to the Neurobehavioral Functioning Inventory: An Exploratory Analysis of TBI Sequelae Report by Race
Abstract: Many studies of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) lack generalizability to minorities. Research review reveals a dearth of studies exploring how different racial or ethnic groups respond to TBI. A number of studies have recently been published on spinal cord injury patients and have shown mixed results with regard race influence on psychological outcomes (Kemp, Krause, Adkins, 1999; Krause, 1998; Fuhrer et al., 1993). That is, some studies report significant differences between races on reports of depression and other emotional difficulties, and other reports find no differences. Unfortunately, many epidemiological studies have been flawed due to measure used, power of the study, age of participants and other health problems. Given the... more

Outcome of Individuals with Traumatic Brain Injury by Disposition from Acute Care
Abstract: The objective of this study is to compare outcomes of those going to TBIMS inpatient rehabilitation with those going to post-acute programs and other dispositions, on cohorts that are comparable in severity of injury and pre-injury social status. Dispositions will include different types and intensities of care, for example, inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation, day treatment, skilled nursing facilities, post-acute services, and no services... more

Implications of blunt versus penetrating violent injury and violent versus non-violent etiology on functional outcome in TBI
Abstract: Violence is the second leading cause of injury for patients treated in the TBIMS. This study will contribute to a needed knowledge base by comparing some key functional outcome characteristics of individuals with violence-related TBIs included in the TBIMS database with those of other etiologies... more

Premorbid psychosocial status and functional measures at inpatient rehabilitation admission as predictors of functional outcome, community integration, psychosocial status and satisfaction with life
Abstract: The objective of this study is to better characterize the predictive abilities of premorbid factors, the DRS, and the FIM at inpatient rehabilitation admission with regard to status on various domains at discharge and at one year post-injury. It would significantly assist the clinician/case manager to know the predictive abilities of these scales, which are often the only ones available at inpatient admission, in order to better assess likely outcome in the short- and long-term... more

Community integration and life satisfaction in TBI from violent etiologies
Abstract: Violence is the second leading cause of injury for patients treated in the TBIMS. This study will examine the community integration of individuals who sustain gunshot wounds (GSWs), assaults, and high velocity injuries in motor vehicle accidents (MVAs). It will also compare satisfaction with life for individuals with violence-related TBIs with those of other etiologies... more

Length of stay in inpatient rehabilitation: does it make a difference in outcome
Abstract: The objective is to investigate whether the length of TBI inpatient rehabilitation stay has an impact on functional outcomes at discharge from rehabilitation and one year post-injury in comparable groups. This comparison is relevant because the managed care environment has brought about shorter inpatient rehabilitation stays determined by reimbursement rather than level of disability... more

Subjective Well-being in the First Two Years Following Traumatic Brain Injury
Abstract: Prospective, longitudinal study of patients with TBI followed at one and two years post-injury. In a single center study stepwise multiple regressions predicted statistically significant, but small proportions of variance. This study proposes to replicate these findings using the TBI Model Systems dataset. Univariate regression models will be calculated first. Those variables that account for at least 1% of variance will be included in subsequent stepwise linear regression models... more

Concordance of Patient and Family Report of Neurobehavioral Symptoms at 1 year Post Traumatic Brain Injury
Abstract: Objective: To determine concordance between patient and family report of neurobehavioral symptoms and problems across 6 domains of function and 3 levels of injury severity at 1 year post traumatic brain injury (TBI).

Design: Prospective longitudinal design with follow-up between 10 and 14 months post injury.

Setting: 17 TBI Model System centers.

Patients: 267 adults with primarily moderate and severe TBI who had completed self-ratings and also had significant other ratings of neurobehavioral symptoms.

Main Outcome Measures: Neurobehavioral Functioning Inventory, Revised (NFI-R), a 70-item scale with subscales assessing frequency of symptoms in Motor, Somatic, Memory/ Attention, Depression, Communication and Aggression... more
