Traumatic Brain Injury VHI

Veteran on imaging table

Clinicians can learn about caring for Veterans with traumatic brain injury (TBI) from the Veterans Health Initiative (VHI) study guide, Traumatic Brain Injury (3.86 MB, PDF).

The study guide provides an overview of the varied symptoms, treatment interventions, and long-term care needs of Veteran patients with TBI.

Sections include:

  • TBI assessment and management
  • Epidemiology of TBI
  • VA care and rehabilitation for TBI and polytrauma
  • Aging with TBI
  • Impact of TBI on families

The study guide is useful for VA and non-VA health care providers caring for Veteran patients. Veterans and the public also may be interested in the guide to learn more about symptoms and treatment. Go to the VA Polytrauma website for information geared to Veterans.
