The Rehabilitation Research and Training Center (RRTC) on Community Integration of Persons with Traumatic Brain Injury at TIRR

T5: Training of Healthcare Professionals in the Community Integration Needs of Persons with TBI

Project Director: Margaret A. Struchen, Ph.D.

Overview

Many individuals with TBI will be receiving their primary medical services, behavioral healthcare services, and case management services from non-specialist professionals. Family practice physicians, internists, psychologists, counselors, and social workers who may be unfamiliar with TBI may become the primary service provider, particularly as the time since injury increases. This project is designed to develop educational materials for non-specialist healthcare professionals about the community integration needs of persons with TBI.
