New report focuses on rehabilitation for children and adolescents with traumatic brain injury
The Oregon Health Sciences University, in its capacity as an Agency for Health Care Policy and Research Evidence-based Practice Center (EPC), has completed an exhaustive review of the literature regarding the effectiveness of interventions to rehabilitate children and adolescents with traumatic brain injury (TBI). A summary of that report is now available from AHCPR.
At AHCPR's request, the EPC conducted this study as a supplement to the evidence report it prepared on TBI rehabilitation for adults, which was released in 1998.
The five-page summary of Evidence Report Number 2, Supplement, Rehabilitation for Traumatic Brain Injury in Children and Adolescents (AHCPR Publication No. 99-E025), is available online at: http://www.ahrq.gov/clinic/epcsums/tbisum2.htm. Print copies are available from the AHCPR Clearinghouse. Copies of the full supplementary report (AHCPR Publication No. 00-E001) will be available in late 1999.
