Traumatic Brain Injury

The Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) research program in the Department of Epidemiology is primarily focused on advancing clinical research methods in search of effective treatment for patients with TBI.

The activities include research collaborations with the IMPACT investigators on:

  • Improving experimental study design in TBI research
  • Understanding the impact of outcome misclassification in TBI clinical trials in order to develop new methods minimizing Glasgow Outcome misclassification in TBI clinical trials

In addition, through research collaborations with the Oslo University Hospital and Oslo University, Norway, IMPACT investigators are:

  • Evaluating health and economic outcomes in TBI research
  • Developing effective rehabilitation intervention programs for patients with moderate and severe TBI
  • Studying long-term outcomes following moderate and severe TBI
