Background and objective: Cognitive recovery after severe traumatic brain injury (TBI) is the biggest challenge facing the critical care nurses (CCNs). Several studies have been reported that the majority of CCNs are concerned with providing conventional nursing practices to severe TBI patients. These practices are directed to stabilize patients’ status rather than to enhance cognitive recovery after TBI. Application of integrative nursing practices for TBI patients can help in enhancing… Expand
