ABIEBR

Evidenced Based Review of Moderate to Severe Acquired Brain Injury (ABIEBR)

http://www.abiebr.com/

ABIEBR is a joint project to develop an evidence-based review of the literature for rehabilitation or rehabilitation-related interventions for ABI. The principle of the ABIEBR is to improve the quality of ABI rehabilitation by synthesizing the current literature into a utilizable format and laying the foundation for effective knowledge transfer to improve programs and services.

The ABIEBR was designed to identify two areas:

  1. Areas in rehabilitation for which strong evidence for effectiveness is lacking and therefore require further research;
  2. Areas where the research evidence is strong and should be transferred effectively to improve programs and services.

The Foundation, with funding support from the Ministry of Health and Long- Term Care, works with consumers, researchers, practitioners, policy and decision makers to create not only a research agenda but also knowledge outreach agenda to create the necessary changes to reduce and/or eliminate this devastating injury and to improve the quality of life for those Ontarians living with a neurotrauma injury, including acquired brain injury (ABI).   Recourses include “Guidelines for Mild TBI and Persistant Symptoms”.
