Post-hospital brain injury rehabilitation programs are afforded limited time to reduce chronic disability resulting from acquired brain injury. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to identify deficit areas resulting from acquired brain injury that have the greatest impact on functional outcomes to enable greater efficiency in rehabilitation programming.

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 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.
