OBJECTIVE The objective of this NIH Consensus Statement is to inform the biomedical research and clinical practice communities of the results of the NIH Consensus Development Conference on Rehabilitation of Persons with Traumatic Brain Injury. The statement provides state-of-the-art information regarding effective rehabilitation measures for persons who have suffered a traumatic brain injury (TBI) and presents the conclusions and recommendations of the consensus panel regarding these issues.

Recommendations for diagnosing a mild traumatic brain injury: a National Academy of Neuropsychology education paper.
TLDR
Recommendations for assessing loss of consciousness, retrograde and post-traumatic amnesia, disorientation and confusion as well as clarification of the neurologic signs that can be indicative of a diagnosis of mild TBI are provided.
Rehabilitation Processes following Traumatic Brain Injury
TLDR
This research provides clinicians and researchers with a clearer picture of some of the factors that affect the post-acute rehabilitation process, in a sample of TBI patients that is more representative of adult TBI than those found in the overwhelming majority of studies, which typically consider only moderate to severe TBI and/or hospitalised cases.
A brief review of traumatic brain injury rehabilitation.
TLDR
There is promising evidence of improved outcome and functional benefits with early induction into a transdisciplinary brain injury rehabilitation programme, however, TBI research is fraught with difficulties because of an intrinsically heterogeneous population due to age, injury severity and type, functional outcome measures and small samples.
Neuropsychiatric problems after traumatic brain injury: unraveling the silent epidemic.
TLDR
Despite the high incidence of severe consequences of TBI, there are scarce empirical data to guide psychiatric treatment, and some approaches that have been helpful include cognitive and behavioral therapy and pharmacologic treatment.
Traumatic Brain Injury
TLDR
An overview of the epidemiology, neuropathology and clinical profiles of TBI, with particular reference to common neuropsychological impairments and their functional consequences is provided.
OF PATIENTS WITH TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY
The subject literature supports that patients with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) have a reduction in information processing speed and that this may contribute to deficits in attention, orientation and
Traumatic Brain Injury Research Since the 1998 NIH Consensus Conference: Accomplishments and Unmet Goals
  • K. Ragnarsson
  • Medicine, Psychology
    The Journal of head trauma rehabilitation
  • 2006
TLDR
A comprehensive review of recently generated research knowledge in the field of TBI has shown that a large number of Class III and IV evidence studies have been published, but relatively few of the more scientifically rigorous Class I or II studies.
Traumatic Brain Injury
TLDR
Beyond the core disciplines (physiatry, physical/occupational therapy, and speech/language pathology), neuropsychology services are added to provide cognitive and behavioral assessment, treatment, and guidance to the remainder of the treatment team.

Characteristics of impaired awareness after traumatic brain injury
TLDR
The present paper presents the results of 2 new studies with a total of 111 traumatic brain injury patients conducted to bring further clarity to this area, confirming and extended many results of previous investigations.
Traumatic brain injury in children and adolescents: psychiatric disorders at two years.
TLDR
It is suggested that there are children, identifiable through clinical assessment, at increased risk for "novel" psychiatric disorders in the second year after TBI, as predicted by Severity of injury, preinjury family function, and prein injury lifetime psychiatric history.
Neuropsychologic Rehabilitation: Quest for a Holistic Approach
TLDR
The approach is anchored in the belief that the eventual attainment of a rational approach to the clinical management and remedial rehabilitation of persons who have had traumatic: brain injuries must be ultimately founded on a clear understanding of the underlying physiologic and neural mechanisms that make possible the recovery of functions following brain injuries.
Productivity after neuropsychologically oriented milieu rehabilitation
TLDR
The proposition that specialty neurorehabilitation programs aimed at work reentry may be helpful in a selected group of TBI patients is supported.
Descriptive Findings from the Traumatic Brain Injury Model Systems National Data Base
TLDR
The TBIMS population is described and outcomes at rehabilitation discharge and at 1 year post injury are presented, as indicated by the Community Integration Questionnaire, individuals tended to do best in the social aspects of community integration and worst in productivity.
Psychosocial outcome following individualized neuropsychological rehabilitation of brain damage
At the center for Rehabilitation of Brain Damage, University of Copenhagen, 46 consecutively admitted brain‐damaged patients with varying pathologies and who were on average 2.9 years post‐injury
Neuropsychological rehabilitation: Proceedings of a consensus conference
TLDR
A group of professionals, survivors of brain injury, and family members met to achieve consensus on a number of issues in neuropsychological rehabilitation, which included the definition of neuro psychological rehabilitation, the role and value of cognitive rehabilitation within neuropsychology rehabilitation, and enhancing functional evaluation to aid in vocational planning.
Enabling America: Assessing the Role of Rehabilitation Science and Engineering
TLDR
The committee introduces the "enabling-disability process" model, which enhances the concepts of disability and rehabilitation, and reviews what is known and what research priorities are emerging in the areas of pathology and impairment.
FUNCTIONAL STATUS AND THERAPEUTIC INTENSITY DURING INPATIENT REHABILITATION
TLDR
It is suggested that efficiently staged rehabilitation should vary the intensity and nature of services according to patients' functional status, impairments, comorbid conditions, and other clinical factors.
Functional Measures After Traumatic Brain Injury: Ceiling Effects of FIM, FIM+FAM, DRS, and CIQ
TLDR
Celling effects for the FIM, FIM+FAM, and two of the three CIQ subscales indicate that these measures are not as sensitive to changes, especially in the community, as may be needed to assess progress in areas most commonly causing dysfunction for the TBI population.
