Utility of the Validity-10 scale across the recovery trajectory following traumatic brain injury

Sara M. Lippa, PhD, et al.

The Validity-10 scale screens for exaggeration of symptoms in patients with a history of traumatic brain injury. Our study examined how time since injury is related to scores on the Validity-10 scale. We found that overall postconcussive symptom report, Validity-10 scale score, and likelihood of having scores indicating exaggeration of symptoms all increased as time since injury increased. This study supports the use of the Validity-10 scale in the early stages of recovery following traumatic brain injury, as well as across the recovery trajectory.
