Functional Outcomes after TBI: an Overview of Methods and Clinical Applications

Mitchell Rosenthal Memorial Lecture Live Webinar 

Tuesday, August 18, 2015

2:00 p.m. eastern/11:00 a.m. pacific

Kristen Dams-O’Connor, Ph.D., Mount Sinai School of Medicine Department of Rehabilitation Medicine

One of the most commonly asked questions among TBI survivors and their family members is: “When will I get better?” It is not possible for clinicians or researchers to answer this question with any certainty. Most TBI outcome research to date has focused on acute outcomes and cross-sectional study designs that provide snapshots of outcomes at certain points in time. In recent years, there has been an increase in the use of sophisticated longitudinal data modeling approaches in TBI outcome research. This has allowed more detailed analysis of the factors that contribute to individual-level variability in functional outcomes over time. Kristen Dams-O’Connor, Ph.D., of the Mount Sinai School of Medicine Department of Rehabilitation Medicine, will provide a brief overview of these approaches as they have been applied to TBI research. Dr. Dams-O’Connor will also discuss clinical and research implications of this study, such as identifying opportunities for clinical intervention to improve health and longevity after TBI.
