Unintentional Injury after a TBI
Previous research examining adults with moderate to severe traumatic brain injury (TBI) who participated in rehabilitation showed that they were twice as likely to die from an unintentional injury that occurred following their TBI, compared to individuals in rehabilitation of similar age, sex and race but without TBI. People who have had a moderate to severe TBI may experience changes in cognition and balance, which may put them at greater risk of subsequent unintentional injuries. This special issue ofNeuroRehabilitation is dedicated to work on unintentional injury after a TBI with a focus on understanding risk related to changes in cognition, health, and behavior.
