Abstract:
Study examined the relationship between early impaired self-awareness (ISA) and depression after traumatic brain injury (TBI), as well as their contributions to prediction of patients' subjective well-being at discharge form inpatient rehabilitation. Subjective well-being was measured by the Satisfaction With Life Scale (SWLS) at discharge from rehabilitation. Multivariable linear regression analysis revealed that ISA and functional status at admission made independent contributions to predict subjective well-being. Bivariable correlational analyses demonstrated that frequency of depressive symptoms was inversely correlated with SWLS scores.
