Practitioners today see increasing numbers of brain injuries across the country and around the globe. The causes run the gamut of human endeavor, from frailty associated with ageing, military activity, sports and motor vehicle accidents of all kinds. A growing awareness of the effects of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and the need for early intervention to ameliorate these effects and improve patient outcomes has led to a demand for practical information by Clinicians on the "frontlines."

Designed for the busy Practitioner Traumatic Brain Injury part of the Rehabilitation Medicine Quick Reference series is a handy reference providing quick answers when diagnosing and treating Traumatic Brain Injuries at every level. One hundred alphabetically listed topics are presented in a consistent two-page format for easy access to key information at a glance. The book covers assessment, diagnostic testing and the full spectrum of brain injury conditions, sequelae and interventions commonly associated with TBI and expected functional outcomes.

Specialised areas of TBI care are also included for unique patient populations, such as sports or military injury and conditions such as Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder or Neuroendocrine Disorder, that may be seen by providers in other settings.

Every entry is standardised for quick look-up in the office or clinic and features description, etiology, risk factors, clinical features, natural history, diagnosis, red flags, treatment, prognosis, helpful hints and suggested readings. All Rehabilitation Medicine Quick Reference titles offer:
  • Consistent approach and organisation: at-a-glance outline format allows readers to find the facts quickly
  • Concise coverage of must-know information broken down into easy-to-locate topics
  • Fast answers to clinical questions: diagnostic and management criteria for problems commonly encountered in daily practice
  • Hands-on practical guidance for all types of interventions and therapies
  • Multi-specialty perspective ensures that issues of relevance to all rehabilitation team members are addressed
