Concordance of clinician judgment of mild traumatic brain injury history with a diagnostic standard

Terri K. Pogoda, PhD, et al.

Mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) is a common injury among Veterans of Operation Iraqi Freedom/ Operation Enduring Freedom. When Veterans experience negative health symptoms after their return from deployment, clinicians are faced with the challenge of determining whether present symptoms are related to an mTBI history or to another health condition. Department of Veterans Affairs clinicians follow a protocol for evaluating mTBI, which is based on standardized diagnostic criteria. In this study, we look at the relationship between clinician judgment of mTBI history and these diagnostic criteria and examine deployment-related and patient factors that are associated with inconsistencies.
