Welcome to the Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Survey
Thank you for agreeing to participate in this research study. This study is being conducted by the Prognosis Task Force of the Brain Injury Interdisciplinary Special Interest Group of the American Congress of Rehabilitation Medicine. The aim is to determine how people with traumatic brain injuries (TBI) and their family members/significant others feel about the brain injury information they received within the first 6 months after injury. The information gathered through this survey will serve as a guide for health care professionals regarding information that should be clearly communicated to people who have brain injuries and their family members/significant others. Individuals completing the patient survey must meet the following criteria:• Have sustained a traumatic brain injury from age 20 on.• Be at least 6 months post injury.• Have no pre-existing neurological or cognitive conditions. The survey is made up of two parts. The first is general information and the second is a questionnaire about the kind of information that you might have received when you were injured/diagnosed. The survey is anonymous and is completely voluntary. No identifying information will be obtained. Please stop taking the survey if you find that filling it out is too taxing or upsetting. Once you start the survey there is no requirement to finish. There is no way to identify the person completing the survey with information provided by that person via the survey website.Results of the survey will be published and presented in professional forums, and will be available by request from the researchers listed at the end of the survey. If you have any questions regarding the survey or this research study, please feel free to email your questions to MJ Schmidt at firstname.lastname@example.org.
