2003 – Collaborative Case Management for Persons with Significant Neurobehavioral Residuals of Brain Injury
Neurobehavioral residuals of brain injury are the most problematical in terms of available and appropriate rehabilitation services. When these residuals are severe the patient frequently may be incarcerated or placed in other non-rehabilitative environments. Forming collaborative case management teams to facilitate accurate diagnosis and appropriate care is essential for rehabilitation to occur.
Specific case studies will illustrate the effective use of collaborative case management to develop, initiate, and coordinate future rehabilitation services for persons with significant and severe neurobehavioral residuals of brain injury.
Results are based upon return to community and the creation of more appropriate care services. Recidivism and placement in non-rehabilitative environments are reduced.
Support for collaborative case management is needed to more effectively and efficiently provide for appropriate rehabilitative services for this population.
