The purpose of this study was to demonstrate an application of Rasch analysis to identify differences in disability profiles resulting from traumatic brain in- jury (TBI) and cerebral vascular accident (CVA) and to examine outcome differences between the two groups following post-hospital residential reha- bilitation. Participant data were collected from 32 facilities in 16 states.
Given a 30% prevalence rate of depression in TBI, the current study focused on the functional impact of differing levels of depression on TBI post-hospital rehabilitation outcome.
Many persons with moderate to severe TBI are unable to live independently after inpatient discharge, but with appropriate post-hospital services, they can improve enough to live more independently.
This study examined the nature and severity of residual deficits experienced by a group of 285 individuals with brain injury and evaluated the efficacy of post-hospital residential rehabilitation programs in treating those deficits.
It is estimated that up to 1.2 million people sustain a mild traumatic brain injury (MTBI) each year the United States. MTBI accounts for more than 1 million (or 1% of) yearly emergency department visits.
This study shows outcome differences between Neurorehabilitation (NR) and Neurobehavioral (NB) clients following residential post-hospital brain injury rehabilitation.
This study examined the effectiveness of four levels of post-hospital care and the functional variables most important to their success. Statistical improvement on the MPAI-4 was observed at each program level.
Understand the impact of anxiety on functional outcomes for TBI adults in posthospital rehabilitation programs and the effectiveness of anxiety reduction by post-hospital neurorehabilitation programming.
The purpose of this research was to evaluate the effectiveness of post-hospital neurobehavioral intensive (NBI) programs for treating acquired brain injury survivors with significant symptoms of behavioral dyscontrol.
Rasch analysis is a statistical technique used in determining statistical properties of functional measures for use in research and treatment.
This study explores gains in function, as measured by the Mayo-Portland Adaptability Inventory-4 (MPAI-4) and understand perceived contributing factors to successes as gained through qualitative interviews of individuals who participated in a Post Hospital Interdisciplinary Brain Injury Rehabilitation – Residential (PHIDBIR-R) program as part of their recovery from brain injury.
