Current Research Studies: Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
In addition to research done through the Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Model System of Care, the Department of Rehabilitation Medicine is currently conducting the following TBI studies:
Treatment for Social Competence in Military Veterans, Service Members and Civilians with Traumatic Brain Injury. This study is a multisite, randomized, controlled trial of a group intervention to improve social competence in survivors of mild and moderate traumatic brain injury (TBI).
For more information, or to find out about participating in the study, please see Studies Seeking Volunteers, or contact Leslie Kempthorne, Study Coordinator, at 206.543.0219 or 1.800.246.6968 or firstname.lastname@example.org
This study is a multisite, pilot study of a group intervention to improve social competence in survivors of mild and moderate traumatic brain injury (TBI). Eligible participants will take part in a 13 week treatment program at University of Washington or Harborview Medical Center with about 7 other individuals who have had a TBI.
For more information, or to find out about participating in the study, please see our Studies Seeking Volunteers, or contact Leslie Kempthorne, Research Coordinator: 206.543.0219 or 1-800-246-6968, email@example.com.
Researchers at the Department of Rehabilitation Medicine at the University of Washington are conducting a research study to learn more about post traumatic headaches (PTH) after Mild Traumatic Brain Injury (MTBI). Accurate knowledge of the natural history of headache after mild TBI is essential for accurate diagnosis, clinical management, and future investigations of headache intervention in persons with MTBI.
Patients who have been admitted to Harborview Medical Center with a MTBI are recruited for the study and if eligible complete an in person interview within one week of their injury. Subjects will then complete 3 telephone interviews at 3 months, 6 months, and 1 year after their injury. Compensation for completion of the interviews is provided.
For more information please contact the principal investigator, Dr. Jeanne Hoffman.
