Adapting Your Practice: Recommendations for the Care of Patients Who Are Homeless or Unstably Housed Living with the Effects of Traumatic Brain Injury
Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) is the leading cause of death and disability among children and young adults in the United States and is associated with disabilities that may interfere with a person’s capacity to maintain stable housing, employment, and relationships. Research has shown high rates of cognitive impairment among people experiencing homelessness.
Our new resource aims to help health care professionals, program administrators, other staff, and students serving individuals with TBI who are homeless or at risk for homelessness. These adapted clinical guidelines focus on tactics to improve patient outcomes and increase access to care, as well as highlighting recommended strategies for the successful screening, treatment, and management of traumatic brain injury in unstably housed populations.
