The purpose of this study is to determine the effectiveness of a multi-professional theoretically based family centered intervention, The Traumatic Brain Injury Family System Intervention ...
The Brain Injury Inpatient Guide for Families and Caregivers (BIIG-FACS) is a comprehensive intervention to meet the needs of family members and significant others of patients who are unde...
The primary purpose of this research is to increase adherence to outpatient rehabilitation of chronically underserved individuals with traumatic brain injury (TBI). The intervention will b...
This research is a randomised controlled study. The study hypothesis is cognitive rehabilitation for attention deficits following mild traumatic brain injury will improve patient's cogniti...
To learn more about behavior and everyday functioning after brain injury, and to learn if behavior and functioning gets better with more education about changes after brain injury.
Examine a psychoeducational and skill-building intervention's effectiveness for individuals after traumatic brain injury (TBI), using a two-arm, parallel, randomized, controlled trial with wait-listed...
10-20% of children and youth with mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) suffer from long-term cognitive impairments with, supposedly, a negative impact on most domains of functioning.
Cognitive deficits associated with traumatic brain injury (TBI) reduce patient quality of life. However, to date, there have been no effective treatments for TBI-associated cognitive deficits. In this...
To examine adherence with and effect of an evidence-based healthy lifestyle intervention modified for individuals with traumatic brain injury (TBI).
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention published the "Report to Congress on the Management of Traumatic Brain Injury in Children" in the spring of 2018. The report is a call to action for prof...
A study in which observations are made before and after an intervention, both in a group that receives the intervention and in a control group that does not.
A study that uses observations at multiple time points before and after an intervention (the "interruption"), in an attempt to detect whether the intervention has had an effect significantly greater than any underlying trend over time.
Prolonged unconsciousness from which the individual cannot be aroused, associated with traumatic injuries to the BRAIN. This may be defined as unconsciousness persisting for 6 hours or longer. Coma results from injury to both cerebral hemispheres or the RETICULAR FORMATION of the BRAIN STEM. Contributing mechanisms include DIFFUSE AXONAL INJURY and BRAIN EDEMA. (From J Neurotrauma 1997 Oct;14(10):699-713)
A form of acquired brain injury which occurs when a sudden trauma causes damage to the brain.
Acute and chronic (see also BRAIN INJURIES, CHRONIC) injuries to the brain, including the cerebral hemispheres, CEREBELLUM, and BRAIN STEM. Clinical manifestations depend on the nature of injury. Diffuse trauma to the brain is frequently associated with DIFFUSE AXONAL INJURY or COMA, POST-TRAUMATIC. Localized injuries may be associated with NEUROBEHAVIORAL MANIFESTATIONS; HEMIPARESIS, or other focal neurologic deficits.
