Traumatic Brain Injury Rehabilitation Book Excerpt:

In 1986 the Trustees of the Nuffield Provincial Hospitals Trust decided to develop a major core programme of studies concerned with the organization, development and improvement of services for physically disabled and frail elderly people. This programme developed rapidly due to the enthusiastic response of those in the field; and by 1992 the total value of the programme was in excess of £2 million and currently totals over £3. 2 million. It comprised a cohesive matrix of grants commissioned throughout the United Kingdom for work in identified areas which, taken in conjunction with existing grants, formed a comprehensive programme of much-needed studies and research in this field. The whole was to be underpinned by a major study planned and financed by the Trust but conducted by the Royal College of Physicians to survey the existing services being provided by some 180 health authorities. This study, together with concern for the handicapped schoolleaver, information about the availability of disability services and the care of mild/moderate head-injured persons, formed the prime initial thrust of the programme. In the case of head injury, the Trust was particularly concerned that there was discontinuity of care for many patients and little evidence as to which treatments were effective. Once patients had stabilized in hospital they were discharged into the community under the care of their general practitioner often without a continuing responsibility from the hospital.

Traumatic Brain Injury Book Excerpt:

Research into the rehabilitation of individuals following Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) in the past 15 years has resulted in greater understanding of the condition. The second edition of this book provides an updated guide for health professionals working with individuals recovering from TBI. Its uniquely clinical focus provides both comprehensive background information, and practical strategies for dealing with common problems with thinking, memory, communication, behaviour and emotional adjustment in both adults and children. The book addresses a wide range of challenges, from those which begin with impairment of consciousness, to those occurring for many years after injury, and presents strategies for maximising participation in all aspects of community life. The book will be of use to practising clinicians, students in health disciplines relevant to neurorehabilitation, and also to the families of individuals with traumatic brain injury.

Traumatic Brain Injury Rehabilitation Book Excerpt:

The Lefaivre Rainbow Effect is a groundbreaking treatment for those suffering from a traumatic brain injury (TBI). This strategy is different from most others because it is individually designed for each client and focuses on the cognitive retraining of the brain based on pre-injury lifestyle as well as the organic damage to the brain, rather than the disability alone. Starting in the community, after the acute and in-patient rehabilitation phases of recovery have been completed, the Lefaivre Rainbow Effect maximizes the recovery process by positioning the TBI survivor to be a motivated participant in the arduous journey of recovery. Key features: Provides tools and templates for managing the individualized treatment and integration process, including additional material available for download Addresses physical, emotional, and cognitive deficits with a strong influence on participation in life activities Includes the unique theory of the traumatically induced dysfunctional family, with the aim to preserve the family unit and reduce the overall loss for the survivor of brain injury Features a practical approach, including chapter summaries, case studies, diagrams, and templates Offers guidance on producing an Independent Medical Evaluation and preparing effectively for cross examination in recognition of the adversarial aspect of many TBI cases This essential text demonstrates how rehabilitation professionals, including occupational therapists, doctors, nurses, social workers, speech pathologists, and neuropsychologists, can use the Lefaivre Rainbow Effect in their practices to improve therapeutic outcomes for their clients.

A Practical Guide to Head Injury Rehabilitation Book Excerpt:

Behavioral neuropsychology presents at once achallenge and an opportunity for the field ofbehavior analysis. A great diversity of problem areas-including education, classroom management, child rearing, retardation, and industry have been treated effectively by the behavior analytic approach, which has traditionally and quite deliberately chosen to deemphasize physiology and cognitive variables. Yet brain injury, by its nature, entails neurological insult that is often closely related to specific cognitive dysfunctions. The challenge for behavior analysis is to develop effective treatments for a disorder with such clearly defined tripartite characteristics. The opportunity exists for be havior analysis to expand its conceptual basis as well as to provide benefits to patients otherwise despairing of assistance. Case histories demonstrate over 20 years of successful applications of behavior analysis to brain-injured in dividuals, indicating that some applications are possible, but are these reports notable exceptions or the harbingers of a new general therapeutic approach? The present book describes an overall focused behaviaral program far dealing with the diversity of brain injury problems in a general brain injury rehabilitation setting. The authors describe what types of neurological damage are associated with specific types of cognitive/emotional dysfunction and in turn with specific types ofbehavioral dysfunction, thereby demonstrating how the choice ofbehavioral treatment is guided by the neurological and subjective assessment. The result is a conceptually unified approach. The distinctive value of this book lies in the detail as well as the pro grammatic guidelines for actual implementation ofthis behavioral approach.

Traumatic Brain Injury Book Excerpt:

In the last decade neuroscience has matured at a remarkable pace, shedding a far more exacting light on mechanisms of neurophysiology, pathophysiology of injury, neuroendocrinology, neuro-immunology, neuroplasticity, neuropharmacology and neurodegenerative processes. Individuals with acquired brain injury are treated earlier and now achieve far better recovery than in the past. The fourth edition of this text constitutes a continuation of 20 years of coverage of traumatic brain injury, and broadens the discussion of acquired brain injury. Within TBI, the paradigm shift from an injury occurring at a point in time to a disease entity of a chronic nature is changing the discussion of diagnosis, management, treatment and outcome assessment. Disease specification that differentiates TBIs by the mechanism of injury, the exact nature of the injury, the extent of injury, presence of co-morbidities and their exact nature, gender, age, race, and genome are emerging as crucial. There was a time when cancer was an undifferentiated disease. Disease differentiation has consequently impacted diagnosis, treatment and outcome. This text is intended to serve as a ready reference tool, contributing to the professional growth of each reader, and stimulating innovation and research. It also promotes the continued refinement in the management of diseases of acquired brain injury.

Traumatic Brain Injury Rehabilitation Book Excerpt:

Clinical neuropsychology and neuro-rehabilitation are disciplines that have truly developed at a phenomenal pace over the last couple of decades. Practitioners have had to make a continued commitment to staying up to date. There are many exciting theoretical, clinical and technological developments within the field. However, central to all of these remains the issue of working with persons who have experienced an extreme, life-changing experience. Often persons struggle to make sense of a traumatic brain injury and live life as it is for them now. Because of improved acute medical care, there are more survivors of traumatic brain injury today than ever before. Traumatic brain injury and the resulting disability constitute a major loss for the individual. Assisting persons with coming to terms with the changes after traumatic brain injury is probably one of the essential tasks in many rehabilitation programs taking a longer-term view regarding outcome. This book represents how neuro-rehabilitation has evolved over the past decade and includes exciting new studies in this field.
