The Prognosis Utility of Pre-Injury, Injury-Related, and Post-Injury Factors in Predicting Outcome in terms of Function, Community Integration, and Quality of Life
Abstract: Abstract: Recovery from TBI involves multiple processes occurring at different times post-injury. Outcome studies have been performed extensively, predominately utilizing the Glasgow Outcome Scale (GOS). The GOS is limited in its measure of outcome by its broad categories; included within a single category may be a wide differential in burden of care, cost, functional level, and social interaction. Studies assessing the relationship of potentially predictive factors to functional outcomes and quality of life are lacking. This study investigates the relationship of premorbid, injury-related and post-injury related factors to function and quality of life.

Primary research hypotheses: 1)Functional outcomes and perceived quality of life at... more

Insurance Benefits as an Outcome Predictor in TBI Rehabilitation
Abstract: Although many outcome predictors have been studied, one that has not received sufficient attention is the level of insurance benefits or financial resources available to a patient. A burgeoning literature, however, attests to how services are influenced by the presence of absence of reimbursement. This influence has been documented in spinal cord injury. The current study extends this line of investigation to outcome from brain injury... more

Factors Influencing Cost of Care and Resource Utilization for Individuals with TBI Participating in Acute Inpatient Rehabilitation: The Relationship to Outcome
Abstract: Difficult decisions regarding the appropriate allocation of services are continually needed in order to control health care costs. In the case of TBI, such decisions must focus on optimizing function and quality of life while minimizing the costs to society and survivors. It is important to demonstrate the efficacy and cost-effectiveness of treatment interventions and service delivery models. Numerous studies have investigated the direct overall cost of acute medical and rehabilitation hospitalization. However, studies regarding the costs and effectiveness of particular treatment strategies utilized in a comprehensive rehabilitation programs and post-acutely are lacking. This study investigates potential predictors of cost... more
