Abstract:
Study compared self-rated awareness of deficit in acute traumatic brain injury (TBI) in 3 major domains of functions (physical, cognitive, and behavioral) using the Awareness Questionnaire. Analysis involved calculation and comparison of patient and clinician ratings in the 3 domains. For patients who were rated as more impaired in at least 1 domain by the clinicians, self-ratings differed significantly in all domains, with behavioral ratings highest, physical lowest, and cognitive intermediate. For patients rated at the same level in all 3 domains by clinicians, physical self-ratings were also lowest. Patients tended to rate themselves as relatively unchanged in cognitive and behavioral domains regardless of the level of clinician ratings on these factors.
