Measurement of social participation outcomes in ehabilitation of veterans with traumatic brain injury

William Stiers, PhD, et al.

The Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) has de- voted substantial resources to the rehabilitation of veterans with traumatic brain injury (TBI). One of the most important rehabilitation outcomes is par- ticipation in community and work activities, which is strongly linked to quality of life. This article dis- cusses the concept of participation, existing ways to measure participation, and research issues in measur- ing participation. Suggestions are made to facilitate the use of participation measurement in TBI clinical practice and rehabilitation research and for future VA research funding for measuring participation in vet- erans with TBI.
