What’s the problem?
Between endocrinologists, neuropsychiatrists, neuropsychologists, neuro-optometrists, psychopharmacologists, occupational therapists, physical therapists, social workers, speech-language pathologists, traditional medicine practitioners, and many other types of professionals, each with their own long list of treatment options, receiving treatment for a TBI is confusing at best. Survivors and their families are rarely well equipped to handle the amount of treatment options, especially with the limits of budget and time.
How can we help?
When information is available and understandable, the best option will often reveal itself. We want to find out which treatment methods have the best results for TBI survivors in general, to give survivors and their families a jumping-off point into the lengthy journey of recovery.
How will we do this?
By conducting research among TBI survivors. This might be reviewing medical records, or surveying survivors and their families. The only certainty is that the survey will be free of bias from the pharmaceutical industry, a bias that sadly purveys many major medical studies.
