Focus On: Traumatic Brain Injury - Fall 2010

The impact of a traumatic brain injury (TBI) can be devastating for both patients and families. Unlike other traumatic injuries, TBI can affect a patient's cognition and personality. The care of a patient with TBI is often long-term and involves many transitions - from acute care after the initial trauma to rehabilitation settings and home care, and everywhere in between. This collection of resources will help you understand what TBI is, how it is diagnosed and managed, and potential cognitive and psychiatric issues. Also included is a special section of combat-related articles which are especially informative and thought-provoking.
