Traumatic Brain Injury

The Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) portfolio includes health services research projects related to the screening, diagnosis, and treatment of individuals who have sustained injuries due to an open or closed trauma to the brain from impact, blast, or acceleration/deceleration. Projects in this portfolio also include issues related to the operational definition of brain injury, screening instruments, and the evaluation of instruments that measure the presence of, recovery from, and the longitudinal outcome of TBI. Projects also include those related to treatment, including models of service delivery, and interventions with family members or studies related to caregiving and community reintegration. Traumatic Brain Injury is a current ORD and HSR priority, as described in the RD Program Announcement on Traumatic Brain Injury, a special HSR solicitation, and in the current HSR priorities announcement (under Post-Deployment Health).
