Longitudinal outcomes of neurological impairment; guidance and management following traumatic brain injury

LONG-TBI Study: Seeking Participants image

What is the project about?
This research project involves a short REDCap survey for neurologists, neurosurgeons, orthopaedic surgeons, rehabilitation
clinicians, psychiatrists, psychologists, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, nurses, and other health professionals who are
involved in acute and chronic care of traumatic brain injury patients. It aims to gather information on the current longitudinal
management of neurological impairments in TBI patients, as well as to explore the awareness of risk of neurodegenerative disease
development following TBI. Through this work, we hope to provide cross-country insights into clinical management, formulate
guidelines that can be used by clinicians to provide more effective, long-term clinical management of TBI and raise awareness of
the increased risk of neurodegenerative disease development following TBI.
