Neuromedical Conditions and Complications Associated with Violent Blunt versus Violent Penetrating Traumatic Brain Injury
Abstract: Survivors of violent traumatic brain injury are subject to multiple neuromedical conditions and complications. These neuromedical conditions and complications have an important impact on long-term care needs and cost. An important area of research to facilitate long term care of such persons is evaluating the incidence and risk factors of neuromedical conditions.... 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

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

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

Relationship of early neuropsychological functioning with supervision needs one year after traumatic brain injury
Abstract: A recently completed study employing TBI Model Systems data revealed that cognitive deficits at one year after TBI are associated with a higher need for supervision at that time, among individuals who do not have significant motor deficits. The present study will examine the relationship between cognitive deficits early in the course of recovery (using the neuropsychological evaluation completed during inpatient rehabilitation) and supervision needs at one year after the trauma. The goal is to establish (if possible) guidelines for clinicians to follow in advising survivors and family members about potential supervision needs in the future.

Complicated Mild Head Injury: A Re-evaluation of Classification and Functional Outcomes
Abstract: Studies describing “complicated” mild brain injury have evaluated neurocognitive functioning after a traumatic injury and found that this group is very similar to those with moderately severe injuries. These studies, however, have not addressed functional outcomes nor have they followed these individuals through one year post-injury... more

Ethnicity and Employment Outcome after TBI
Abstract: Previous investigations have shown that minority persons have poorer employment outcomes after traumatic brain injury (TBI). The present investigation seeks to investigate associated factors that contribute to these poorer outcomes. Based on prior research, we expect that the poorer outcomes for minority persons will be largely medicated by education level, pre-injury employment status, cause of injury, and other factors... 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
